Disabled car parking

Bath and North East Somerset Council operate a blue badge scheme for disabled car users. They also recognise disabled permits issued in other countries.

For disabled badge holders the nearest parking is in York Street or outside the Guild Hall.

Designated easy access parking bays are also available for blue badge holders in most city centre car parks. The nearest short stay car park is a five-minute walk away at the Podium in Northgate Street, BA1 5AL, or the Southgate car park in St. James Parade, BA1 1TP.
