Parking – There is not much free parking around the Bookfair. The cheapest & most convenient pay & display parking is in Trinity Centre’s own car park (ie £3 for 4hrs, £4 for 6hrs, £5 upto 12hrs). Street parking nearby is more expensive and usually limited to a max of 2 hours. However there are a few streets nearby where permit & metered parking is not in operation on Saturdays – try Braggs La, Trinity St, Waterloo Rd.
Pay & Display street parking in the area operates Monday-Friday or Saturday from 9am-5pm.
Residential Permit Parking operates nearby from Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm. So it’s possible to park where this is in operation, if there’s space! Mainly to be found in side streets off Stapleton Rd.
Please beware of clampers/traffic wardens everywhere near the centre of Bristol (including in Trinity’s car park!).
