Park and Ride
There is also a Park and Ride service which operates from just outside Lyme Regis to the East, on the A3052 road to Rousdon. Unfortunately, it only operates during school holidays. Rates for the Park and Ride fluctuate with season, and pick up and dropp off outside the Cobb Arms Pub.
The West Dorset car parks, Holmbush and Charmouth Road, have some disabled parking bays but not many. If you are a blue badge holder you car park along the cart road which is accessed from Cobb Gate car park and is the road that runs alongside the pebbled beach.

There is an NCP car park situated on the main high street (Broad Street) in between Tesco’s and Boots. This is a much smaller car park, with approximately 50 parking spots, and has a minimum charge of £1.80 for one hour, with 1-3 hours costing £3.30, and 3-24 hours costing £4.00.Due to the situation of the car park larger vehicles cannot be accommodated here (when bookiing over phone or online, car park code is 9216).
