Parking at Christ Church

Christ Church is located in the Clifton Village (CV) Residents Parking Zone

The zone is divided into two halves bordered by Clifton Park, with different operating times as shown in the map below:

 Parking Zone

During the hours of operation you may use the Pay and Display bays around the church building.  These cost £1 per hour for a maximum of 3 hours with the first 30 minutes free. 

To park for free you still need to get a ticket from one of the machines.  Please check the signs carefully as not all bays are Pay and Display.

Pay and Display bays are shown in purple or green on the map below:

Parking Zone Enlarged

If you are coming for longer, we have a limited number of parking permits which are available on a first-come-first-served basis.  These must be collected from the Church Office in Linden Gate, displayed prominently in your car windscreen, and then returned to the office when you leave.  Permits may not be held overnight without prior approval from the office.

The nearest public car park is the West End Car Park, in Berkeley Place (postcode BS8 1EH).  Charges are £1 for one hour up to £10 for twelve hours. Christ Church is a 15 minute walk away.

There is a small driveway in Linden Gate for up to four cars.  This may only be used by those visiting the church office during office hours or when collecting/returning parking permits.

After 5pm or on Saturdays you may park in the blue area without a permit or Pay and Display ticket.

There are no restrictions on Sundays.
