Where to park when visiting Haven Great Yarmouth Air Show

Map showing the location of park-and-ride and Premium Parking for the air show

Motorists heading to Great Yarmouth’s new summer air show are being steered towards two large park-and-ride sites on the outskirts of the town.

But there is also the chance to buy premium parking spots at three locations in easy walking distance of the seafront.

The 500-space park and rides will operate from the town’s Racecourse, for people coming in from the Norwich direction and the north, and at Beacon Park for drivers heading coming in from the south. Fees range from £10-£18.

All seafront car parks will be closed for the weekend – but there are 600 spaces including Blue Badge slots – at Premium Parking locations at North Drive, South Beach Parade and Euston Road.

Premium parking daily tickets costing £35 and park-and-ride tickets are now on sale.

The Haven Great Yarmouth Air Show is organised by the Greater Yarmouth Tourism and Business Improvement Area and is expected to attract 175,000 people and generate an extra £10m for local traders.

Air show director Asa Morrison said: “This is going to be a brilliant event for the area – but that also means lots of traffic as people flock to see our flying displays.

“With car parks and streets closed, for security reasons, and some streets zoned for resident parking only – we are encouraging people to buy their parking now, so they can come and enjoy the fun without searching for a spot.

”Our aim is to make it as hassle-free as possible for drivers – with a combination of park-and-ride and some convenient spaces close to the seafront. A lot of planning has gone into the parking in consultation with the police and borough council to ensure it is easy to book, easy to use, safe and convenient.”

Chris Speed, head of operations at First Eastern Counties, which will be running the park-and-ride bus services said: ”We are pleased to be involved in this year’s event and look forward to welcoming guests, who will, I am sure, be in for a great day’s entertainment at the air show.”

Other travel information, including trains, will be announced later.
