Parking In Axminster: Cheap Axminster station Car parking

For such a small town Axminster has a lot of car parks and it is actually remarkably cheap to park here when compared to nearby Lyme Regis Car Parks, with the obvious reason being Axminster is a good 8 miles from the sea. 

Couple that with the fact that in most of the long stay car parks once you have paid for three hours the rest of the day is free and you can see this is an excellent place to spend a some time without worrying how much you car parking charges are going to rack up.  

The most expensive place to park is at Axminster Station. But on our page we suggest an alternative which is much cheaper and a 50 yard walk away.

Set out below and presented in no particular order are all the car parks in the town. 

Poplar Mount Car Park

Poplar Mount Car Park Axminster
A long stay car park just out of town toward Chard. Handy for the hospital and good value if staying over three hours and the cheaper one in town is full. It is less than a five minute walk in to the town from here. 


Axminster Station Car Park

It you are staying all day this could well be the place to park, but it is popular with people who work in the town so you need to be early to get a space. It is at the top of the town and if full you should try Poplar Mount nearby.


Coombe Lane Car Park Axminster

Coombe Lane Car Park Axminster
Tucked away off South Street access is only possible from there or Lyme Road down Coombe Lane. It is in a handy spot for the town just behind the church in the centre. Deemed long stay if you are in town for over three hours it is a good option.


Tesco Axminster Car Park

To be found at the bottom of the town close to the railway station Free for two hours for shoppers at the store but there is a (steep) footpath up to the town from here. Cameras record entry and exit times.
