Park & Ride over the festive period
Christmas in Winchester is a special time of year and many people choose this time to visit the shops and popular Winchester Cathedral Christmas market. To make your visit as easy as possible, we encourage you to use our Park & Ride service during this very busy period - it's the most efficient way to visit. To make it even easier, we've added more bus services and a Sunday bus service too. Full details can be found on this page.
Many of our car parks are within walkable distances of the city centre (and these also have one hour's free parking too) , but did you know you can also walk from two of our park and ride sites? Barfield Close and St. Catherine’s. Walking maps to the city centre from these car parks can be found on this page (PDF links).
Additionally, our extended Barfield P&R site (Phase II) has additional facilities such as EV charging points, parent & child spaces, and a greater number of disabled spaces. This car park also takes debit card payments and customers can also pay to park by phone using RingGo cashless parking.
Extra Park & Ride services will be in place from Friday 17 November until Thursday 21 December 2023.
Monday to Saturday
Buses will run at least every 10 minutes until 6pm. The last bus back from town will leave around 8.25pm.
We've added a free Sunday bus shuttle to The Broadway from East Park & Ride (St. Catherine's & Barfield) car parks on 19 & 26 November and 3, 10 & 17 December 2023. Please note there will not be a shuttle bus on Christmas Eve.
