Two pay and display car parks are situated very close to the Devon Guild; on Station Road (where the Tourist Information kiosk is sited) and on Le Molay-Littry Way (which has level access to the shoppers car park across a small footbridge). Both these car parks are free on Sundays and after 6pm.

There is one hour free parking for anyone to use in the Co-op car park located next to Riverside Mill. However there is no pay and display facility in this car park if you wish to stay longer. Blue Badge holders displaying a valid badge will not be ticketed in any of the spaces in the Co-op car park.

There is a dedicated parking space for blue Badge holders alongside our main gallery building wall and a parking space for gallery and shop deliveries. If you are making a delivery that might take longer than an hour to load/unload please speak to a member of Devon Guild staff.
