Parking and Approach

Very limited parking for Suspension Bridge Buttress and the Amphitheatre is available at the two gated entrances to the land below the Amphitheatre. The road is marked with double yellow lines which apply up to the boundary i.e. the wall/gateway. In theory parking shouldn't be possible in either gateway, but there is a long-standing informal agreement with Parking Services that there can be one vehicle parked in each space, but no more than one.


Given the increased popularity of this area it is important to avoid more than one car being parked in each spot as this may lead to withdrawal of the informal agreement that is currently in place and parking tickets issued to any car parked there. If the spaces are already filled when you arrive, please don't add extra vehicles and instead find alternative parking (the nearest being either Main Wall or in Clifton).
