Parking space availability
The Park and Ride car parks are very popular - particularly Thornhill (off the A40 from London) and Seacourt (off the A420 from Swindon and Bath), which are sometimes full by 9am.
There are also live travel signs on the A40 approach to Thornhill, which will warn you if that car park is full.
