Travel Arrangements

Before you commit to visiting Bath by car have you considered coming by train? Southcot Place is ideally situated for those wishing to visit the city by public transport, the train station being only a 2-minute walk away. If you do want to bring your car, please bear in mind that parking is limited in the city centre.

Car Parking

Parking in Bath is zoned for residents and Southcot Place is in Zone 3. There is no dedicated parking for the apartment although there is free parking between 7:00 pm and 8:00 am Monday to Saturday, and all day on Sundays.

If you require parking outside these times you can ask us to purchase a Visitor’s Permit for the duration of your stay (subject to availability) or there is free parking a short walk up LyncombeHill, just outside the Zone 3 boundary or  paid parking in the main city centre car parks.

Garage Option

We do have a garage that is available to rent (£10/day).  Please note that it is suitable for small cars, motorbikes and push bikes. Details and size are at the link below.


Visitor’s Parking Permit - Zone 3

If you require a Zone 3 visitor’s parking permit during your visit please request this well in advance of your stay.

Please allow as much notice as possible and at least 72 hours for a parking permit to be booked by us. We will do our best to accommodate the requirements of last minute bookings.

We charge a flat admin fee of £14.00.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer parking before 1600 on the day of arrival or after 1100 on the day of your departure as we have a restricted number of visitor permits available.

Please email providing your booking number and the car/van registration number and Time & Date of parking required (eg 812, RF15GFX, 1600-1900 Fri 17 Oct 19).

We will send you confirmation of your Zone 3 Visitors Parking Permit once it has been purchased by us. Please note that we accept no liability for parking offences that contravene the Local Authorities' parking regulations or for periods when we have not confirmed your zone 3 visitors parking permit.

Peak Season and High Demand

We are limited on the number of permits that we can issue and occasionally our occasionally we are unable to offer visitor permits.  On these occasions we recommend dropping off baggage at teh apartment and parking up  in Southgate Centre which is secure and covered and just a few minutes drive and walk away.
