Bridgwater Carnival Travel
Enjoy the Bridgwater Carnival and plan your journey, find a place to park and know all the road closures thanks to Heart.
Of course the best way to enjoy the carnival and ensure you don't miss it thanks to busy roads and travel delays is to listen to Heart. We'll have the latest on the roads throughout the day, but a little bit of planning never hurts...
If travelling by car the main road from J24 of the M5 will close at 6.30pm, roads from J23 will remain open throughout the evening but we'd recommend arriving before 6.30pm to avoid any disappointment. We'd also recommend using the main car parks in Bridgwater which will be clearly signposted from the motorway. For full directions click here .
Some road closures begin at 8am on the morning of the Carnival with further roads being closed throughout the day and the majority of roads will be closed from 6pm. All roads will remain closed until 1am so expect delays until then.
