Warminster is situated in the county of Wiltshire, approximately 20 miles from Bath and Salisbury and close to the border with Somerset.
Please note that the Imber Park & Ride site used in 2019 is no longer available, so we therefore strongly advise you to use public transport to attend our event if at all possible.
For those arriving by public transport, Warminster Rail Station is on the Cardiff-Bristol-Portsmouth rail line which operates approximately every hour.
If you would prefer to travel by local bus bus, the following bus services run to places served by Imberbus on Saturdays:
- First service D1 runs to Warminster every hour from Bath, Bradford on Avon, Trowbridge and Westbury.
- Beeline service 24 runs to Warminster every 2 hours from Salisbury;
- Frome Bus service 53 runs from Frome to Warminster every hour;
- Faresaver service 272 runs every hour from Bath and Melksham to Devizes, where it connects with bus 270 to West Lavington and Market Lavington;
- Salisbury Reds service 2 runs approximately every hour from Salisbury and Devizes to Tilshead, Gore Cross and West Lavington.
Please visit the Traveline website during the summer for more details of these services.
For those travelling by car, Warminster is located at the junction of the A36 and A350 and is near to the infamous A303 ! You should find plenty of parking available Warminster’s Central Car Park which is off station road, so round the corner from the rail station – see map below (for those of you using SatNav, the postcode for Warminster’s Central Car Park is BA12 9BX). Other public car parks are also available (including a small one at the station itself) but please note that normal weekday charges apply at all the town’s car parks on Saturdays. If you are intending to use the Station car park, please watch out for buses manoeuvring around the Station forecourt and be prepared to wait whilst we reverse them into position.
A small amount of roadside parking is also available in West Lavington and Market Lavington, but please ensure that you leave plenty of space for the Imberbuses to get past. Please note that the Imber Park & Ride site that we used in 2019 is no longer in operation and there is no parking available at Gore Cross Interchange either, as both sites are part of the Salisbury Plain Military Training Area.
