The most convenient place to park, for visitors to Sturminster Newton, is the large Station Rd Car Park.
If coming into town from the A457, via Bridge Street:
- After passing through the Market Cross area turn right at the traffic lights.
- Follow the B3091 to its junction with Station Road. Turn right.
- Follow Station Road uphill. At the top of the hill follow Station Road round to the left.
- The entrance to the car park is a couple of hundred metres further along, past the public toilets, on the left.
Other parking is available but tends to be time limited, or has few spaces and/or difficult access.
