We would advise avoiding driving into the City Centre as there will be a rolling programme of road closures due to the route needed for the Procession party. Bristol has a wonderful Park and Ride system which can be used to avoid heavy congestion within the City Centre.

If you do decide to drive into the City Centre then it’s important to have an idea of what car parks are the most suitable to avoid the road closures. The Proclamation will be read at College Green. The car park behind City Hall will be closed to the public. We strongly advise avoiding any public car parks and on-street parking around College Green.

A list of car parks in Bristol can be found here via Visit Bristol. We recommend the car parks away from the main City Centre to avoid road closures and heavy traffic.
