Parking in Totnes

Car Parking

The local car parks, a mix of short and long stay, are managed by South Hams District Council, who offer a variety of residents and visitors permits. One of the most popular is the weekly visitors permit, which allows unrestricted parking in a selection of car parks around the district. From January 1st 2011, these will cost £32. They are available from Totnes Information Centre or from South Hams District Council. See for car park locations and tariffs. Totnes town centre has time restricted parking meters on the main street. There is also a residential parking scheme in place on many of the roads immediately around the town centre.

There is also a drop off at The Lamb, near The Narrows, just off the A381, which allows passengers to walk downhill through the town. The coach parking bays are at Steamer Quay Car Park, along Steamer Quay Road.

Motorbike Parking

There are designated motorbike parking bays in four of the District Council car parks in town. There is no charge for parking in these bays. See for more details. On-street parking is also free, even when there are meters or a residents parking scheme in operation. Contact Devon County Council for more information.

Motorhomes and boat trailers

The designated car park in Totnes for mobile homes and boat trailers is Longmarsh, at the end of Steamer Quay Road. Owners need to pay for the number of parking bays occupied.
