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.

Please note new fares for young people.

Return or single £4. Young people from 5 years to 16 years £2. children under 5 are free.

Bus passes are NOT accepted as this is a private bus service.

Dogs are allowed on the buses.

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.

Dogs are allowed.
