CARNIVAL 2017: Park & Ride info for Bridgwater Carnival visitors
A NUMBER of Park & Ride schemes will again be in operation on Saturday (November 4, 2017) for Bridgwater Carnival – thanks to the Buses of Somerset.
The service will operate from the following times on Carnival day with parking from 2pm located just off J.23 M5 (British Car Auctions) – TA6 4TN & J.24 M5 (Junction 24 Ltd) – TA6 6DF, and from 11am at the Morrison’s Manufacturing Site in Bristol Road, use J.23 exit M5 – TA6 4AT.
Park & Ride charges are £5 per car plus £1 per adult travelling.
A Bridgwater Carnival spokesman said: “You should find this much easier than looking for town centre car parks; buses will run from the site entrance to the town centre returning after the procession picking you up from the position you were dropped off.
“This service will be available from the times advertised above as being open, with the first bus leaving when full, the buses will run a regular service both ways until 11.30pm when the last bus leaves the pick-up point as shown on the map below.
“These sites will be signposted from the M5 junction.”
