Recap: Gloucester Tall Ships Festival 2019 – traffic, parking and all you need to know


Loading ....


If you’re still planning on heading into the city for the festival then here’s what you need to know about travel

Patches of the A40 are moving slowly but this is to be expected with the amount of traffic heading to the festival.

Car Parking

There will be event car park signs directing drivers to additional parking areas. You can also use the city centre car parks – the majority of which are within walking distance of the docks.

It is busy though!

Park and Ride

Gloucester has two park and ride sites operate during the festival.

Waterwells Park and Ride is south of the city in Quedgeley.

And there is a park and ride service running from EDF Energy over-spill car park in Barnett Way in Barnwood.

Tickets are £4 and £2 for pensioners with a bus pass.

The buses leave EDF at 9:45, 10:15, 10:30, 11:00, 11:15, 11:45, 12:00, 12:30, 12:45, 1:15, 2:15, 2:45 and 3:00.

They leave the Docks at 3:30, 3:45, 4:15, 4:30, 5:00, 5:15, 5:45 and 6:00.
