There are many Pay and Display car parks in the City Centre but, owing to limited parking available in the Barbican area, its a good idea to leave your vehicle in the multi-storey car-park at Coxside and walk across the lock gates. Park & Ride facilities are available at Coypool (near Marsh Mills roundabout) and at Milehouse (follow the signs to Plymouth Argyle). You may leave your car free of charge at the attendant supervised car parks then, for a modest sum, take a bus ride into the City Centre. This service operates from early morning until about 6.30 p.m. every day except Sundays. (Please note that, for obvious reasons, there is no Saturday service from Milehouse when Plymouth Argyle F.C . is playing a home match) Park & Ride also operates from Ivybridge train station (just off the A38 Devon Expressway).
