Coach pick up/ set down facilities during matinee performances
Bristol City Council and The Bristol Hippodrome have recognised the need for temporary coach drop off and pick up facilities during matinee performances at The Bristol Hippodrome. The pick up element of these performances coincides with evening rush hour and can cause problems with coaches blocking traffic lanes and causing severe congestion around the central area. A leaflet is available which provides details of temporary areas that coaches can drop off and pick up without affecting the flow of traffic around the centre and should be read in conjunction with Bristol’s long stay coach parking facilities leaflet available at www.travelbristol.org/coach-parking
Please take note of the waiting limits at these temporary sites, as they will be patrolled by Civil Enforcement Officers to ensure they are used as intended.
Bristol Airport is a short journey from the Bristol Hippodrome.
