This large long-stay car park is convenient for various pubs and restaurants including la Trattoria and The Ship Inn, as well as for exploring Swanage Pier or a quick scamper on the town’s year-round dog-friendly beach.
It’s also the nearest car park to the town’s amphitheatre located in Prince Albert Gardens, which holds performances and plays host to various festivals throughout the year.
You’ll find Broad Road car park by following High Street to the southern end of town.
Turn right up the hill by Gee Whites and East Bar onto Seymer Road and the car park at Broad Road will be on your left.
- Hourly – Park from £1.50 for an hour to just over £6 for four hours, or up to £7.20 for six hours. If you’re arriving in the evening it’s just £1 from 6pm for the duration of your parking (until 8am the following day)
- Daily – A daily car parking ticket (£8) is also available and can also be used at Main Beach Car Park
- Three/seven-day tickets – You can pay for a three-day or weekly car parking ticket at Broad Road, which is handy if you’re staying at one of the local B&Bs that may not have dedicated parking, or if you’re staying in a neighbouring Purbeck village, but want the ease of being able to come and go to Swanage as you please. This pay-by-phone only parking ticket is valid in all long-stay Swanage car parks.
