Other coaches 

Wiltshire Council have advised that coaches drop off/pick up from Exeter/St. John Street instead of the Millstream Coach Park on the evening of the carnival. If coaches require somewhere to park that evening, then they can do so at the Britford Park and Ride site. Wiltshire Council have confirmed that this P&R site will not close and has no height restrictions. Coach drivers are advised that if they would like to use the P&R bus service to come into the city then the last bus back to the P&R site is the number 9 at 18:40 from Milford Street. The X3 service will stop nearby to the Britford Park & Ride after this time.

All Council run car parks in Salisbury are free after 6pm (Culver Street Shoppers' Car Park is free from 3pm!), however the Central Car park will be restricted for parking this evening due to the gathering of the floats and other entries for the start of the Carnival.  Park and ride buses generally stop running directly to the sites between 6 - 6.30pm.  However it is possible to get a public bus back to outside many of the sites after the park and rides buses have stopped running.  Please see Salisbury Reds for more information.
