Providence car park is free and has 37 free parking spaces.

It serves the High Street and the eastern Waterfront.

To reach it, drive along Western Road, which continues as Orchard Road. Turn right into Ship Road – the car park entrance is not far from the junction and on your right.

You can walk to it from the High Street by turning up Providence, the road opposite the Clock Tower.

Providence Car Park is diagonally opposite The Queen’s Head.

It is run and maintained by the Town Council.
