Lewes Chamber of Commerce is pleased to report that on the 5th, 12th & 19th December 14 of the Town’s Pay & Display car parks will be free to park in.


Free Parking 2020

Lewes District Council (LDC) have agreed to offer day-time free parking to pre-Christmas shoppers in a bid to attract visitors to the Town and support our independent shops and eateries.

Chamber 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 for Christmas Campaign.”

Please note this applies to the following LDC Car Parks only, and NOT on street parking:

  • Brook Street
  • Cliffe High Street
  • East Street
  • Friars Walk
  • Little East Street
  • The Maltings
