FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?


There is one public carpark, well signposted in Watlington, close to the Town Hall.

Additional parking has been arranged at Watlington Primary School, Love Lane, Watlington.

(Please note there is normally a one way system for this parking through the secondary school but this gate will be closed. So access and entry will be via the same gateway, please be advised to proceed with care.)

The school is seven minutes minutes walk from the Town Hall.

If you could take advantage of this it would ease pressure on the public car park, thanks.
