Temple Street Car Park
It is very small strange place!

Most of the spaces are designated as "Reserved" and I counted just 11 spaces that were "free".

Handy to park in if you are going to the Voulenteer Arms nearby, especically after 6 p.m. when you can stop for longer than the 2 hours allowed (4 p.m. see above) if you can find a space. 

With two hours free parking if you are stopping here for a visit to the town you will not have long there if you walk in.

Getting to Sidmouth town centre from This car park

Leave the car park and turn left and outside the pub there is a bus stop when buses will take you in to the town. 

If you elect to walk it is around 750 yards and faily level. There is a continuous pavement but is does get very narrow in places.
