Staying for several days
Parking for a few days in Sidmouth
You can buy a ticket from the machine allowing you to park in any East Devon car park for the duration of a holiday visit. You can only obtain these tickets from the machine so bring plenty of £1 coins.
It follows that if you are visiting the area one ticket would be valid in the council car parks in Axminster, Honiton, Seaton, Beer etc.
These tickets are printed on thermal paper which fades quickly in the sun. You are advised to take a picture of it once issued in case of problems.
Of course having the ticket does not guarantee you a space!
This ticket is not valid at Bedford Lawn Car Park in Sidmouth
When checked this was the cheapest long stay option, and the most flexible. The "Parking Web Sites" e.g. Just Park etc. could not offer cheaper prices.
Off season (November to March) there may be cheaper options, see signs locally.
(11th September 2021)
Drivers parking in East Devon car parks won't be able to use cash to buy 'pay and display' tickets in the coming days.
East Devon District Council has apologised for the inconvenience this has caused and thanked residents and visitors alike for their understanding and patience.
The issues have arisen following an unexpected announcement today (Friday, 10 September) regarding EDDC's long standing cash collection contractor which has ceased trading.
