Car parking at Poundbury Garden centre, Dorset.

Has anyone been there? Distance wise, it looks like it could be a suitable place for a mid journey break on an upcoming day out. However, it does appear to be smack in the middle of town. Does anyone have personal experience of visiting and parking? It’ll be a mid week day, and not half term.
Many thanks in advance.

    My home town,so I know the area well. Ive been to the GC several times.
    Its not near the old busy town centre at all. Its within the area that Prince Charles had a hand in designing,or at least an opinion on! You should have no trouble parking,and could even take a picnic to Maiden Castle which is close by. Its referred to as Poundbury village with very Royal road names! Look out for them😊
    The whole truth is an instrument that can only be played by an expert.

    That’s really helpful, Valley Gardener! We have in the past stopped at the nearby, rather tatty, MacDonalds for a loo break, and a takeaway coffee. Don’t know why I didn’t check before for a convenient garden centre. As it’s just going to be a day trip, I might get tempted by a pretty plant or two!
