Please remember that the Clifton Suspension Bridge will be closed on Thursday 10th August and Saturday 12th August from 6pm until midnight to all pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles. You can find out more about the bridge closure here.
Ashton Court is situated to the south west of Bristol city centre. Directions to the car parks can be found on your print at home ticket.
We urge you not to use SAT NAV devices and follow event road signage to the correct car park.
Those wishing to cycle can take ‘Festival Way’ a traffic-free path connecting the city to Ashton Court Estate and beyond. Starting in Bristol, you can use the National Cycling Route 33 which takes you on a traffic free path from Queens Square out of the city via Cumberland Road. Crossing the River Avon you join Kennel Lodge Road as you enter Ashton Court. There is bike parking available onsite by the Mansion House and the fallow deer park.
For those on foot, there are two main routes into the Fiesta site via Festival Way as detailed above or via the Clifton Suspension Bridge.
A Balloon Shuttle bus service is operated by First Bus, from Temple Meads Train Station and the City Centre (St Augustine’s Parade – opposite Colston Street) to the Balloon Fiesta. We highly recommend local residents take advantage of this service. Tickets can be purchased on the bus with no need to pre book. For more information on prices and timings please click here.
