Car Parking Charges
Unfortunately Car Parking Charges will be NOT be lifted in the Minehead Car Parks during the time the Special buses carrying people in to Dunster are running. Most car parks in the town are free after 6pm but not before, please check the notice boards when you park.
There are a number of large supermarkets in Minehead with car parks, however, parking is limited to a few hours after which time penalty charges will be made.
West Somerset Council have an up-to-date list of car park, click here to visit their website.
Candlelight Bus Fares
The fare is £4.00 single or return per person irrespective of where you board the bus.
Children under 12 years travel free but only if they are accompanied by an adult. Groups of unaccompanied children under 12 will not be free.
Bus passes are not accepted on the buses as this is a private service.
Dogs are allowed.
Candlelight Bus Departure Points
Follow the road signs from the A39 to find the bus departure places and parking within Minehead.
Buses depart from the entrance to Butlins on the sea front and just outside the West Somerset Railway station.
There is only one main parking area and it is in front of Butlins. This Car Park fills up so it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with areas and streets that have parking in Minehead. There is parking all along the sea front but there is a charge before 6pm
Please be aware that up to 6pm there is a charge in several of the parking areas.
Candlelight Bus Timetable
The Minehead buses will run continuously from 3pm.
The last bus going back from Dunster to Minehead will be about 10.30pm.
