Market Location and Parking in Devizes

(Note: disabled visitors are advised not to use the Station Road Car Park highlighted in this map
 as it is at the foot of a steep hill. Others nearby are on the same level as the Market Place)


  1. Hi are the stalls in the main market area?As I'm not familiar to Devizes is there any disabled parking you can suggest please? Many thanks Nicola

  2. Yes the stalls are in the central Market Place.
    As this is a public space the Festival cannot make special parking arrangements. Normal concessions apply to Blue Badge holders. There are a number of public car parks close by with level access to the Market Place (visit Wiltshire Council website for details). The car park in Station Road however is not suitable being at the foot of a steep hill.
