Bridgwater Carnival 2018 - pitches & coach transport

Bridgwater Carnival 2018 - Sat 3rd Nov

The Somerset Carnivals are widely regarded as the largest illuminated processions in the UK and Europe, and here they are right on our doorstep!

Bridgwater is the biggest and most spectacular of them all!

Measuring up to a staggering 100ft long, the carnival

floats and walking entries are the spectacular results of months of hard work and dedication by the many Somerset carnival clubs. It's impossible to put into words the magnificence of some of the entries. The sheer size, sound and colours fill the streets from pavement to sky.

Competition to create the biggest, best and most incredible carnival carts is very fierce amongst the many clubs, so you can be assured of more and more spectacular entries every year.

Somerset Carnivals are definitely not just for kids!

On carnival day, most routes for drivers into Bridgwater town are closed off by 4.30pm* (sometimes earlier), so it's important to get in early if you want a parking space. There's live entertainment all afternoon in the heart of the town, so no chance of getting bored pre-carnival!

Leave the car at Old Oaks and let us worry about driving, parking or traffic jams. Immerse yourself in the carnival atmosphere and experience an event you'll never forget.

Coaches leave at 4.15pm. One returns at 11.30pm after the Squibbing and the other at the earlier time of 10pm.
