Pavilion Theatre Bournmouth - Parking

Parking at the BIC and Pavilion


As in most large towns, finding somewhere to park can be difficult. This is especially the case for daytime events (matinees, conferences etc) during the Summer Season and Christmas time when the car parks are at their busiest.

The car parks at the BIC (650 spaces) and Pavilion (185 spaces) are both public Pay and Display and are not reserved exclusively for patrons. There are many other car parks within walking distance.

The BIC car park has achieved the "Park Mark" Safer Parking Award.

The height restriction of the BIC car park is 6' 6" or 2 metres. This is indicated on a suspended height barrier at the entrance to the car park. Arriving late for an event can result in having to wait until the interval before being admitted. We strongly recommend that you allow up to an hour before the event commencement time to find a parking space to avoid congestion.
