Coach Parking

Home > Visit, Explore and Learn > Groups > Coach Parking


The coach drop off point is on Observatory Road, just off the Sion Hill/Bridge Road crossroads about 150 metres from the bridge (postcode BS8 4AW). There is a 20 minute drop-off and pick-up allowance.

Please note that there is a weight limit for the bridge and there is no turning space on the approach road, so do not drive past this point.

In special circumstances, groups may arrive at the Leigh Woods side of the bridge, but please speak to us in advance about this whether you have booked a tour or are on a self guided visit so that we can be waiting for you in high-vis jackets in order to direct traffic safely around your vehicle. Call 0117 974 4664 for further information.
