Click here to see the list of car parks in the council area. None have height information.

Motorhomes: None of the our car parks have allocated spaces for larger vehicles but
Station Road in Kingswood, Conham River Park and Bitton Railway Station car parks are unregulated without a height barrier, so motorhomes can park there during the daytime.
Please be aware that all of the regulated car parks are patrolled by our parking attendants on a regular basis and that a penalty charge notice may be issued if your vehicle is not parked within the parking regulations. Therefore we strongly advise you to check the regulations listed on the car park sign before leaving your vehicle unattended.

Bath and North East Somerset

OS Map Landranger 172
If you are visiting Bath with a tall vehicle then we recommend using the following car parks:
Lansdown Park and Ride - BA1 9BJ N of Bath - 878 spaces. No height restrictions. There are bays available for motorhomes and other large vehicles.

Charlotte Street Car Park - This is a large open air car park with no height restrictions, all the bays are standard length. It is located within the Bath City Centre. (Use the end towards Marlborough Lane as this area is quieter and bays can overhang vegetation beds to ensure wheels are within markings.)

Keynsham - Bath Hill East BS31 1HH - no height restrictions.

If you need to straddle 2 bays you must buy tickets for each bay and display them.
