Finding Sideshore Car Park

Sideshore Car Park Exmouth 1
This is a long stay car park charged diferently to others.

The main sign-posted road in to Exmouth is the A376. This brings you down to the station and car parks nearer to the town centre itself.

To get to the seafront you can just turn left at the roundabout at the end of the A376, right at the next one, head straight through the main High Street and at the top turn right, again at a roundabout. Whilst this will be a the shortest way to the seafront if the town is busy you could get stuck in traffic. 

As an alternative, at the roundabout at the end of the A376 go straight ahead then at the next roundabout first left down Imperial Road then second right in to Victoria ROAD (Not Victoria Avenue). Victoria Road will take you to the seafront. At the T junction at the end just turn left and you are now on the "Esplanade". 

You will find this car park on your left after about 1000 yards.

More Information

Sideshore Car Park Exmouth 3
This 37 space is still and East Devon Council run car park but looks and is operated differently.

If you have an electric car then charging points (chargeable) are available. 

Cars only permitted, no other vehicles.  

If vehicle charging you must also pay for parking.

Unless you are parking to charge a car then it is cheaper to park opposite at Queens Road Car Park

Also on site is the Sideshore Watersports centre and cafe. If you are considering dining here then I suggest looking at the menu/prices first from the link above as it is most certainly not "Cheap Eats".
