Free parking can still be found in Lyme although most of it is time limited. In the center of Lyme, Broad Street has free parking for about 17 vehicles, perfect for shopping. Further up the hill into Pound Street is additional time limited free parking, a relatively steep walk to the top though.
At the top of Broad Street is the right fork into Silver Street, 100m further on are 10 free spaces outside Lyme Regis library. Carrying on towards Uplyme brings you to the Nag's Head public house, opposite are 5 rather bijou parking speces and a further half a mile up Silver Street, opposite Lyme Bay Hoidays, is 100m of roadside parking.
