Accessibility at Pride

Accessibility at Pride is very important to us.
We’re committed to accessibility at the festival, each year we work to improve provisions to make Pride Day accessible for all.

Pride Day is held on Durdham Downs which is a grassed area of parkland in Clifton. This year we’ve increased the size our the viewing platforms plus moved the trackway matting and the access gate further away from the main stage to try to alleviate some of the crowd density issues. You can find more information about the measures we have put in place to make the event as accessible as possible below.

Any questions, specific access requirements, concerns or general feedback email us on access@bristolpride.co.uk we aim to get back to you within 5 working days.

With thanks to BT our festival Access Partner

The Parade

The parade will gather in Castle Park, the end near the band stand, before heading off to Lloyds Amphitheatre and We the Curious’ Millennium Square.

The route is 2 miles long and will take about 1 hour to complete. We have tried to reduce the amount of hills we take (not easy in Bristol) though there is a hill incline on Union Street so some may wish to join the parade at the other end of Castle Park, by Wine Street.

Water is not provided on the route however there is a refill fountain on Millennium Square at the end of the parade and many outlets in Bristol participate in the Refill scheme if you have an empty bottle you can fill up with.

There are a couple of accessible toilets along the route – see this map for details.

If you want to be dropped off at Castle Park please be aware there are limited stopping spaces but the best postcode for the site is BS1 3XE.

At the end of the Parade there are free shuttle busses ready to take people up to the downs, all the buses are accessible however queues can be busy at times, especially when the parade first arrives, but there will be a priority queue for Pride goers with access needs.
