Some additional information about parking in weymouth, to cater to all your parking needs
On-street parking is available, in many cases free of charge for up to one hour, in areas where residents’ parking restrictions are not in force. In some areas popular with visitors, for example, around the harbour, demand for free parking spaces is such that it may be difficult to find one, but all occupants of a parking space must move on after a maximum of sixty minutes. Anyone prepared to walk ten to fifteen minutes will generally find a parking space on the road outside the central and harbour area.
As one might expect of a town heavily reliant on tourism, there is a good provision of off-street parking spaces in Weymouth. Among the largest car parks are:
But there are many others, locatable by easily visible signs.
Weymouth is well provided with a bus route to nearby towns and villages. Also, there is an open-top bus service along the seafront and beach, and another to Portland. The Jurassic Coaster bus plies two routes; the X51 to Axminster and the X53 to Bridport.
Weymouth Station is on the Great Western Line and has regular train services to London, Bournemouth, Southampton and Oxford, as well as intermediate stations.
Council car parks in Weymouth provide parking spaces for Blue Badge holders, and they may also use non-designated parking spaces. However, parking for Blue Badge holders is charged at the same rate as paid by other users, except that they get an extra hour free of charge. This does not mean that Blue Badge holders who park for less than an hour do not have to pay.
In some parts of the town, parking spaces and on-street parking are restricted to residents and require a resident’s parking permit to be displayed. Signs are displayed where such restrictions are in place.
Parking is free in council-owned car parks on Christmas Day and New Years Day. On other bank holidays, standard Sunday charges apply.
Except where there are yellow kerb markings, there are no restrictions on dropping off and picking up passengers, including passengers who are not disabled. However, this does not extend to a right to wait for the person you are picking up in an area where parking would not usually be allowed.
Many people come here for the fossils on the Jurassic coast, and others to watch seabirds. It’s a centre for sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing and classes are available. You could take a deep sea fishing trip, visit the Sea Life Adventure Park or try coarse fishing at Wally’s Lake. Nothe Fort was built in Victorian times, and there are eight acres of gardens, as well as a tea room at Bennetts Water Gardens. Or, of course, you could simply enjoy the beach.
