Car Park on Bristol Street
Large car park of 300+ spaces on Bristol Street, Swindon. 5 - 10 mins walk to Swindon Railway Station and located close to the city centre.
Our company name is Bransby Wilson, please look out for the signs in the car park so you know you are in the correct car park. Apcoa car parks are next door closest to the Swindon railway Station but over double the price.
Please ensure you read the instructions once you have booked. There is a site map also included to show the exact location of the car park. Please park in any available bay in the car park, except from the spaces with reserved signs and do not park in red lined bays.
You can park overnight but the main entrance gate is locked from 11:00pm to 5:00am. If you need access after 11:00pm, you can gain access through the Apcoa car park and exit through there as well.
This site is regularly patrolled by enforcement car park patrol officers. Please ensure you display your booking reference number on your dashboard. You can simply write this on piece of paper but it must be clearly displayed on your dashboard.
The reason I don't give 5 stars is that while I paid £5.20 for a "reserved place" in the car park through this app, JustPark, when you print the payment confirmation it says simply one can park anywhere, i.e. there is no previous reservation. And equally or even more important, if you pay at the car park, you only pay £3.50 (24 hour parking). Easy car park to get to, and it takes 5-7 minutes to walk to the station. It is large enough for you to more than likely find a free space.
A big car park, convenient for the station (about 10 mins walk). I found it easily with the help of an online map and virtual street view. I appreciated being able to book in advance (I was there the week before Christmas) but ordinarily would pay and display in the normal way. My only negatives would be that the car park was icy when I arrived at 8.45am and the floodlights were not on when I returned at 4.45pm. This makes me wonder how safe the carpark is and will be a consideration before I park there again (weather, time of day etc).
All worked well, although the car park was nearly full and day payers were still arriving. There appears to be demarcation for pre-paid parking. I assume that it is controlled somehow.
Great feedback from my initial booking and it was good to have the reminder on the day. Very friendly. Unfortunately however although we found Bristol Street no problem but couldn't find any reference to this parking area. Had to abandon the car in the end - thanks to someone's compassion - so as not to miss our coach to London. Probably our fault but all was not completely lost
Easy and did the job. It's a parking space for less than the neighboring spaces. What more is necessary?
