    Parking at St Martin's:

    There is little parking around St Martin’s Church and the easiest, most predictable course of action is to park free in the:

     CULVER STREET CAR PARK (SP1 2BQ)  http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/parkingtransportandstreets/carparking/findacarpark.htm?ID=71

    From there it is a five minute walk to the church on the other side of the ring road. Leave the car park down Culver Street South and take the first left into Payne Hill where there is a pedestrian underpass leading to St Martin’s Church Street.

    There is some STREET PARKING on single yellow lines (after 18.00) and resident’s parking (after18.00) in Tollgate Road and Marina Road.

    There is limited DISABLED PARKING in front of the Church. If you need a disabled space please contact us through the contact page on this website.
