Travel Information

By Car

Our Park & Ride bus service will be in operation! As in previous years, you will be able to park at one of our temporary carparks and hop on a bus to take you to Market Place.

Please head for the Frome Medical Practice (Enos Way, BA11 2FH) or Frome College (Bath Road, BA11 2HQ)

The first shuttle bus is at 10am, last bus from town centre 3.45pm. Donations of £1 per person gratefully received at car parks or onboard the buses.

There are other car parks in Frome with limited availability, with the exception of South Parade car park which is for permit holders only on Sundays.

Additional car park information is available here

HOWEVER…

If possible, we would like to ask that you consider walking from the car parks into the market to keep congestion on board the buses to a minimum. The walk from the Park & Ride car parks into Frome town centre takes around 10-15 minutes.

Please bring a face covering with you, unless you are mask-exempt, as this will be required when using the shuttle bus.

As in previous years, we ask that visitors show consideration for the local community and do not park in residential streets or block access for homes and business.

By Bus & Train

There are many services running between Frome and Bristol, Bath, Dorset and other destinations, but some may be subject to engineering works and rail replacement bus services. Please use the links below and be sure to leave plenty of time to plan your trip.

Buses are fully accessible with space for a wheelchair, however there will be some disabled parking bays available in Frome town centre for blue badge holders. Please make contact with a member of our stewarding team if you would like them to find a disabled parking bay for you.
