There are plenty of car parks available but beware - Sunday 26 August will be very busy with not just the Children's Festival but the Bridgnorth Music & Arts Festival and the Bridgnorth Food Fair taking place on the same day. Bridgnorth High Street will be closed to traffic.
A map of car parks is available: GO>>> but we suggest that if you don't mind a walk that you use the Westgate Car Park (behind the the Council Offices) which offers FREE ALL DAY CAR PARKING. It's around 15 minutes walk to the High Street.
