    Who's going and where are you staying? What is the situation regarding staying in Morrisons?

    Hi Colyboy,
    we went several years ago stopped at Sainsburys car park they had agreed with some local charity to let them charge a £5 overnight parking fee.
    it was OK so/so bit noisy due to a few drunk people milling about until the early hours .
    Carnival was fantastic
    I would love to go again

    It's a brave man that parks up in Bridgwater on the night of the carnival, there will be a lot of drunks milling about and it's Bridgwater!

    Too true, either that or a high vantage point and some binoculars :D

    Agreed - Bridgwater is not like it used to be years ago - even the police station has moved out of town!

    Have seen this is a popular option for Funsters in previous years http://www.theoldoaks.co.uk/bridgwatercarnival.html & still some limited availability. It's staying on a good site in Glastonbury & they run a coach to the carnival in Bridgwater which takes you back after the squibbing.

    What they don't tell you is the coach is actually a riot wagon

    Don't put everyone off! I've heard that the Old Oaks is a quiet site & although the centre of Bridgwater will be rowdy (the drinking starts early) it's fine on the outskirts.

    I'm only joking, the drinking certainly starts early, for that reason I wouldn't wild camp in a supermarket car park, it is a well renowned carnival though
