Bath & North East Somerset Council is now taking bookings for customers bringing visitors to the 2015 Bath Christmas Market by coach.

The Christmas Market runs from Thursday 26 November to Sunday 13 December.

Demand for coach parking during this popular event is high and it is therefore essential bookings are made as early as possible to drop off, park and pick up passengers.

If visits are not pre-booked coaches may be denied access to the Coach Park and all day parking facilities.

The Council is once again operating an online booking system which also allows customers to view live availability of dates and times.

Following feedback received after the 2014 Christmas Market customers can now also choose the parking location that their coach and driver will be allocated during their visit.

Councillor Anthony Clarke (Conservative, Lansdown), Cabinet Member for Transport, said: “The Christmas Market attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. Travelling by coach, rather than by car, reduces the pressure on routes into the city.

Year on year we strive to improve our customers’ experience and the changes made to the booking system reflect our commitment to listen to and act on the feedback we receive.”
