Organisers of Southampton Maritime Festival have today issued advance advice for motorists ahead of 22/23 August.
Southampton Maritime Festival, the popular family heritage event, last year attracted over 12,000 and this year organisers hope event more visitors will come down to the docks to see heritage boats, buses, trams and performers. They advise, however, that the event doesn't have a large public car park – so if you want to bring a car you will need to buy an advance ticket to park close to the event.
Motorists turning up on the day will be directed to nearby public car parks, excepting blue badge holders. From city centre car parks Festival visitors will be able to catch a FREE vintage shuttle bus to the Festival gates. The FREE heritage buses will pick up from West Quay Car Parks, Southampton Coach Station, Southampton Central Rail Station (London side), SeaCity Museum, City West Quay and Platform Road.
The free shuttle service will also help to alleviate congestion in what is a busy area of the city.
