Getting Around


Whether you get around by bus, bicycle, car or coach, here are the details.

By Bus: As an alternative why not use the excellent bus service to travel around the area. There are regular services to Barnstaple and along the coast. Why not catch the bus one way and walk back to Ilfracombe along the South West Coast Path for a wonderful day out. The Tourist Information Centre have timetables and can provide further details or call Traveline on 0870 6082608.

The Dotto Train:  Runs around the town from 10am to 5pm, at weekends from Easter to the end of October & daily during the summer months. There is no timetable as it depends on how long it takes to go through the town centre, starting at Hillsborough Car Park down Portland Street, through the High Street, Church Street, Wilder Road & St James Place to The Pier and returning via The Cove back to Hillsborough.

Car Parking:  Ilfracombe has car parks at strategic points throughout the town. Further information is displayed in each car park regarding charges. 4 day and 7 day North Devon Council car parking permits are available from the Tourist Information Centre which are valid throughout North Devon*.
