Hi i usually use visitor parking permits mon-friday locally (GR). Do I need to use one tomorrow or is it free parking in Southwark on Bank Holidays?

Bank holidays are Sundays, Sundays are usually free in most places, Borough Market and other places may vary.

I wouldn't take graham's advice as gospel, although I am certain that it was meant with the best intentions.
The parking regulations are notoriously hazy and I have seen cars being ticketed many times when a reasonable person would assume that it was o.k. to park.
Check to see if there are any wardens around and ask them, but the fact that wardens are on the streets would mean that tickets are probably being issued.
Good luck dilanroj.

"Usually free... may vary... "
Also red routes & bus lanes are no go zones too, driver beware!
