Car Parking

There is a real shortage of car parking space in Firle Village. On sunny days, weekends and bank holidays there is so much traffic that the village cannot cope. We encourage visitors, wherever possible, to either park in the car park at the top of the downs beyond Firle village or visit the village via alternative means of transport. Please see suggestions above, or if there’s no alternative, you’ll find more Firle parking info here
