Finding Cobb Gate Car Park
This car park is right in the heart of the town near the bottom of the main high street and new to the traffic lights, on unsurprisingly, Broad Street (A3052).
As you enter Lyme Regis from the west on the A3052 go down the hill and through all the shops and the entrance can be seen to the right just as the Rock Point Inn comes in to view ahead.
Coming from the east drop down in to the town and go through the traffic lights. Soon after the lights you will pass on your right some public toilets and the entrance to this car park is opposite.
As with all the car parks in Lyme Regis it is a popular place to park, and this one is the best for a level walk in to the town and on to the sea front.
It is expensive once you stay for over 3 hours.
How much does it cost to park at Cobb Gate Car Park
The Car Park is operated by Dorset Council, as are more of the car parks in Lyme Regis.
The cost to park is:-
Up to 20 minutes 40p,
Up to one hour 70p,
Up to two hours £1.60,
Up to three hours £4,
Then £4 per hour thereafter.
From the above you can see it is excellent for a short stay but very expensive for anything over three hours.
There is no height restriction on the entrance.
This is a handy car park for a short visit to the town, if you can find a space, which usually you cannot.

Broad Street Car Park oddities
The car park is right in the centre of the town.
It is tiny and several spaces are marked out for "Blue Badge" parking. If you are looking to make a short visit as it is so easy to get in, round and out of it again it could be considered worth a look, but the chances of finding a space are remote.
There is an attractive clock in the middle of it that forms a traffic island you can drive around to get out again!
