The height restriction at all sites is 2.4 metres (8ft). However, the Britford site has a large dedicated area with no height restrictions for oversize vehicles. There is overnight parking available at Hudson's Field campsite during summer months, which we recommend you use if you have a campervan.

  • You might also consider walking, cycling or car sharing from the site
  • All car parks are also covered by Closed Circuit Television (CCTV), and have the Park Mark Safer Parking Award

Returning to the site after it has closed

If you return to the Beehive, Wilton, Britford or London Road sites after 8pm and find the barrier closed, please press and release the help button on the exit gates. This will contact the CCTV control centre, who can raise the barrier for you.

Unfortunately our CCTV centre cannot currently open the barriers at the Petersfinger site outside of our opening hours. You must collect your car between 7.25am and 6.45pm Monday to Fridays, and 7.50am and 6.40pm on Saturdays – it is not possible to exit the Petersfinger car park at night or on Sundays.

Overnight parking

You may park overnight, but your car is left at your own risk and the council accepts no responsibility for any damage to your car.

You can plan your journey using the Transport Direct Journey Planner by using the Connecting Wiltshire website.

The park and ride bus service is run by the Salisbury Reds bus company on behalf of Wiltshire Council and forms part of the local bus network in Salisbury.
