Did you know that parking for Buses & Coaches is absolutely free during the Dickensian Festival. We think this is something rather special becuase we beleive that anyone coming along to our wonderful festival with a coach load of people, are rather special too. We like to look after you all, so please read this page so that we can plan for your arrival.
So, if you are an organised party planning to come along to the Dickensian weekend, you MUST phone ahead and let us know you are coming.
Please phone Mr Peter Winston on 01229 580640.
All we need to know is your vehicle type, how many people are in your party and what your party or tour bus company is called. That's it, simple as that and then you get to park for free.
SAT NAV Postcode for the arrival point is LA12 7AL
The arrival point is County Square, Ulverston, which is the roundabout directly outside the Coronation Hall in Ulverston. From the M6, simply follow the signs to Barrow In Furness and you will eventually (after about 30 minutes from the M6) arrive in Ulverston, the Coach Arrival Point is signposted clearly.
At the arrival point you will be met by our meet & greet team all in Dickensian outfits and they will explain everything to you.
Programmes will be available at this point and toliets and refreshments are all nearby.
Once your party have disembarked, buses & coaches will be escorted to the parking areas. Drivers will then be brought back to County Square where drivers will receive a meal voucher.
The Departure/Collection point is also at County Square. Please advise passangers to arrive 10 minutes before your departure time to avoid unecassary queuing.
