Best Free Parking Spots in Lewes


PLEASE NOTE: Lewes is a super beautiful small town and the majority of the roads are equally small and narrow. From riding around I can clearly see the 1600 residents already have parking issues, so if it can be avoided, please do use the Car Parks or just come by train instead especially if you’re coming to Lewes in November for the world-famous fireworks Night.

The below article was written on 19th November 2020 and will be referring to Christmas of 2020 only at the point of writing.

Free parking in Lewes to boost Shop Independent scheme

We are pleased to report that on the Saturdays 5th, 12th & 19th December, fourteen of Lewes’s Pay & Display car parks will be free for parking.

This applies to the following LDC Car Parks (on-street parking is not included):

  • Brook Street
  • Cliffe High Street
  • East Street
  • Friars Walk
  • Little East Street
  • The Maltings
  • Market Lane
  • Mountfield Road
  • Phoenix Causeway
  • Pinwell Road
  • South Street (North)
  • Spring Gardens
  • West Street
  • Westgate Street

Lewes Chamber of Commerce President, Clare Crouch, said “This year has been a horrible year for everyone, especially the small independent shops and businesses. We encourage Lewes residents and visitors from outside the town to come into Lewes and find refreshing ideas that they may not have seen in their own home-town shops. 

“This gesture by LDC is very much appreciated, and we hope that it will give everyone planning their Christmas shopping yet another great reason to do it here in Lewes! We just ask that everyone follows social distancing rules and guidelines that the shops have in place.

“We also realise that some shoppers may not be comfortable or able to physically visit Lewes, which is why we encourage them to check out shops websites as well as get involved with the ‘Shop Independent at Christmas’ Campaign.”
