Parking for Free in Beer
Pass The Anchor Inn with the pub on your right and proceed up Common Lane (it is one way) and there are a few spaces just up there on your left where you can park for free for up to two hours.
Also, as you drive in to the village just after the hairpin bend (assuming you are coming from Seaton), there are about 3 spaces on the right where you can park free for 2 hours near the (one) coach parking space.
Parking is free after 6 p.m. in the central car park (yellow spaces only) See this page.
So if you are coming for an evening visit you only need to pay up until 6 pm for your stay, provided you are in the yellow spaces.
