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