There are many options to choose from when parking in Lyme Regis which all offer parking at different rates, and hopefully this guide will help you for when you make a visit. All car parks work on a Pay and Display basis
Parking Close to Coombe St
We recommend using Woodmead Halls Car Park, just a few minutes walk from Lavender Cottage and Teal House in Coombe Street. This is the closest car park and you can buy 3 and 7 day permits.

Parking Closest to Sundial House
We recommend Holmbush Car Park which is closer to Sundial House than than Woodmead Halls Car Park.
Out Of Central Town Parking
There are two long stay car parks in Lyme Regis, Holmbush and Charmouth Road Holmbush Car Park is situated on the A3052 entering from Rousdon, and is just a few minutes walk from the beach and the centre of town. Charmouth Road car parkis the opposite side of town, and as the road name suggests is located on the road from Charmouth, just below Lyme Regis Football Club.For a parking spot from 8 a.m.- 6p.m. will cost just £1, and until 8a.m. the next day will cost only 40p more, so this is the best value for money and most recommended. There are around 300 spaces but on a sunny summers day these will bothfill quickly so arriving no later than 11a.m. should gurantee a parking spot.
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.
If you want easier access to the beach then there is a car park at the bottom of Cobb Road, just West of the Cobb itself called Cabanya Car Park. There are around 200 parking spots here and each 2 hour period costs £2.00(when booking online or over the phone, car park code is 7621).
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).
There are also two car parks at the bottom of Lyme, situated directly opposite each other. Cobb Gate car park, a stones throw from the beach, can accommodate approximately 20 cars, whilst across the road can accommodate closer to 40. Both charge the same rates, and are as follows:
20 minutes- 40p
1 hour- 70p
2 hours- £1.60
3 hours- £4.00
Each Subsequent hour- £4.00
