Finding Woodmead Car Park
This car park is tucked away down some side streets towards the west of the town centre. On a busy day it is quite a good place to try as it is a little bit tucked away and not well signed.
As you enter Lyme Regis from the west on the A3052 at the top of the "High Street" where the shops start turn sharp left before entering the main high street. The after about 150 yards turn right.
The car park may be found on the left after around 200 yards.
(If you are approaching from Uplyme turn left about 100 yards after The Nags Head pub.)
If you are coming in from te east (A35/Charmouth) turn right up Monmouth Street opposite the church and before the traffic lights in the centre of town (Signed to the car park) and follow the signs. Be warned the roads to the car park from this direction are narrow!
How much does it cost to park at Woodmead Car Park
The Car Park is operated by Lyme Regis Town Council, as are more of the car parks in Lyme Regis.
The cost to park is a flat £1 per hour.
There is no cut off, so if you arrive at 10 a.m. and plan to leave at 6 p.m. then it is £8.
This is one of the dearer car parks in Lyme Regis, perhaps because it is nearer the town centre.
It is an ideal place to park for a shorter stay, say one or two hours, but beyond three hours it starts to get expensive compared to others.
There is no height restriction on the entrance.
Three-day ticket - £25.00
Weekly ticket - £50.00

Getting in to The Town from Woodmead Car Park
You have two options to get in to the heart of Lyme Regis.
Leaving the car park you can go up the hill to the top of the road and turn left, this route will take you to the top of the main high street. The total walk is around 350 yards, some of which is quite steep (up).
The other option is to exit the car park and walk down the hill. After about 75 yards you will come to a road junction where you should bear right, but look to the right at the wrought iron railings and here you will see the entrance to an attractive riverside walk taking you part of the way in to town. You basically just head as straight on as possible and you will end up near the traffic lights at the bottom of the high street.
