Park and Ride:
Like last year there will be two Park & Ride schemes running. One will run from J24, just off the M5 (Junction 24 Ltd). The second will run from the Bridgwater Car Auction site, just off J23 of the M5. A third will be open at 11:00am from Morrison's Distribution Centre J23 off of the M5.
The cost for each park and ride will be £5 per car plus £1 for adults travelling on the bus service. Buses will be running from the site entrance to the town centre, returning after the procession by picking you up from the same position you were dropped off at. This service will be available from 2:00pm, the first bus will be leaving once it is full, and the buses will run a regular service both ways until the last bus at 11:30pm.
There is plenty of car parking in Bridgwater for the carnival. Car parks are situated at:
