PARKING IN ILFRACOMBE

 

Being a small town built for fishing and boats; and horses and trains, rather than cars and coaches, some of our streets are very narrow and on-street parking is in extremely short supply and can cause major disruptions.

We ask all our visitors to use the numerous car parks near to our attractions.
