Additional Information

Some additional information about parking in salisbury, to cater to all your parking needs

  • On-street parking

    The city centre of Salisbury, with its one-way-system and single track roads, is not very vehicle friendly and can be difficult to navigate by car. On-street parking in Salisbury is expensive, and only short stays are available. However, on-street parking spaces are free after 6:00 pm. Visitors who don’t mind walking into the city might be able to find free on-street parking in a side street further afield. It is important to check the signs carefully, as many on-street parking spaces are for residents only.

  • Off-street parking

    Visitors on a day trip to Salisbury are advised to use one of the five Park&Ride car parks, instead of parking in Salisbury city centre. These are Wilton Park & Ride (A36 west of the city and A360 from Devizes), Petersfinger Park & Ride (A36 from Southampton), Beehive Park & Ride (A345 from Amesbury), Britford Park & Ride (A338 from Bournemouth and  A354 from Blandford Forum) and London Road Park & Ride (A30 from the north-east of the city). Parking is currently free in these car parks, and Park & Ride buses frequently run to and from the city centre.


    The Central car park and Culver Street car park have long stay parking spaces in the city centre. Several car parks within the city centre offer short stay parking in Salisbury, including Crane Street, Brown Street, Salt Lane and the Central car park.

  • Public transport

    Visitors who are concerned about where to park in Salisbury will find the city easy to navigate by public transport. Buses run throughout the entire city and serve all the important locations in and around Salisbury, including popular visitor destinations such as Weymouth, Shaftesbury, Bournemouth, Southhampton and Stonehenge.

  • Disabled parking

    All car parks which are run by Salisbury City Council have parking spaces for Blue Badge holders. To make parking in Salisbury easier for Blue Badge holders, the city has published a leaflet for disabled motorists with detailed information about parking spaces in Salisbury. Blue Badge holders are free to use loading bays for parking in Salisbury.

  • Parking restrictions & event days

    Salisbury has many residents-only parking zones. Council-run car parks have height and weight restrictions, so drivers of large vehicles need to consider where to park outside of Salisbury and catch a bus into the city.

  • Overnight, weekends & bank holidays

    Although parking in Salisbury is free on Sundays in council-run car parks, charges apply as usual on bank holidays.

  • Drop-off and pick-up

    Salisbury station has clearly marked drop-off and pick-up points near the main entrance and on the approach to the station. These parking spaces are restricted to a maximum stay of twenty minutes.


    For coach parking in Salisbury, there is a designated drop-off and pick-up point on St John’s Street, where coaches can stop for ten minutes.

  • Nearby attractions

    Visitor attractions in and around Salisbury include the stunning 13th-century cathedral which is home to an original copy of the Magna Carta, Salisbury Museum, the old iron age hill fort Old Sarum and the iconic pre-historic stone circle of Stonehenge, which is nine miles north of Salisbury.
