Pride Day: Sat 9 July

Accessibility at Pride 2022

Access at Pride is very important to us.
Along with funding from the Bristol City Council Imagination Fund, we’ve partnered with UWE to support our commitment to accessibility at Pride

Moving to a new site in 2019 presented some challenges and we’ve been working on improving and will keep working 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 added a new viewing platforms plus trackway matting to reach these areas from our new access gate. You can find more information about the measure 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.

The Parade

This year we gather in Castle Park before heading off to Bristol 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) but those with restricted mobility or wheelchair users may struggle with the first loop around Cabot Circus due to a steep hill on Union Street so feel free to simply join us as we pass by the other side of Castle Park, by Wine Street, if you don’t fancy the hill.

There will not be water provided on the route.

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.

With thanks to
