But whether you’re planning a stag or hen weekend, family holiday or business trip, it has to be something special to compete with Bristol itself. Sitting on the River Avon in South West England, this city has a fascinating history to complement its lively contemporary scene. Hillforts from the Iron Age and villas from the Roman era prove that this has been a popular place to hang out for a long time, but Bristol as we know it dates from the start of the 11th Century, when the settlement was known as Brycgstow.
Fast forward to the present, and modern Bristol is bustling thanks to the aerospace and electronics. But it’s perhaps best known for its creative industries. Home of Banksy and Massive Attack, the city’s also a hub for Aaardman Animations, Channel 4 and the BBC. And sports and culture venues include the Memorial Stadium, Spike Island, the Arnolfini and Royal West of England Academy. From arty spaces and independent stores in communities like Stokes Croft to live music and experimental theatre, there’s always something on the go. And if food and drink floats your boat, you’ll find sumptuous street food at central market, homely cafes in Clifton and a warm welcome and cool beer in cool pubs and clubs citywide. Last but not least, Bristol caters for health and fitness fans too – there’s hot springs bathing at Bristol Lido, bouldering at Bloc and kayaking in the former industrial waterfront.

Parking’s no problem at BRS – which is exactly what you’d expect from an airport with a ground breaking heritage that stretches back to the late 1920s. In 1927, a pioneering group of local businessmen started a kind of crowd fund scheme of its day – raising £6000 in public subscriptions to start the Filton Aerodrome flying club. Buoyed by their success, they decided Bristol needed a fully functional passenger airport and purchased a portion of farmland at Whitchurch for the purpose. Bristol Airport was officially opened in 1930 and handles 4000 passengers a year prior to being commandeered by the Air Ministry during WWII. However, due to a lack of space for extending the runway at this site, Lulsgate Bottom Airfield was bought in 1955 and this allowed BRS as we know it to open in 1957.
Compare Bristol Airport Parking
Bristol Airport offers lots of different types of parking. So finding the kind that suits you shouldn’t be hard, and the right parking really depends on your unique needs and preferences.
If you have no additional requirements and are hitting the skies for a weekend away, short stay facilities are fab. Meanwhile, long stay parking does what it says on the sign and if you need a little extra assistance and a personalised service to get your travels off to a smooth start, meet and greet might be the very dab.
What kind of parking is there at Bristol Airport?
Parking options at BRS are deep and diverse. And you can choose between official airport parking facilities and options from trusted parking partners like Looking 4 Parking and APH.
Looking 4 Parking leads the way with great deals available on official Bristol Airport Long Stay Parking, Official Bristol Airport Multi-Storey Parking and Official Bristol Meet and Greet Parking. But APH is no slouch when it comes to BRS parking either – this longstanding parking partner with over 40 years’ experience offers options in the Bristol Airport Silver Zone, Short Stay, Long Stay and Multi-Storey. And APH is also first choice when you want a parking deal and airport hotel combo – perfect if you’re travelling from a little further afield and want to wake up fresh for your flight rather than rushing through check-in and security.
Let’s take a little look at what the official BRS airport parking facilities have to offer.
Jetting off for 3 days or more? In that case, official BRS Silver Zone parking is pretty much ideal for your needs. It’s refreshingly simple to use – just park your car and stroll over to reception where you use a self-service kiosk to check in and drop your keys. Then just hop on one of the comfy, frequent shuttle buses to the terminal (they come every 15 minutes, so you’ll never wait for long). You can amend or cancel your booking up to 48 hours before you’re due to arrive, so it’s super-flexible. And the Silver Zone facility is also Park Mark accredited, with CCTV coverage, automated number plate recognition and round-the-clock monitoring.
Multi-Storey Car Park
For speed and convenience, BRS Multi-Storey car parking is hard to beat. There are tons of generously proportioned, covered spaces, empty space indicators and it’s situated opposite the terminal (just a 2-3 minute walk). Low-cost but with robust security, this Park Mark awarded facility is a popular choice for holidaymakers and there are several special assistance parking bays on the ground floor.
When you’re off on an extended trip, Bristol Airport official Long Stay parking is the natural choice. Popular with businesspeople and pleasure seekers alike, this self-park option allows you to keep your keys, it’s close to the terminal (just a 5-15 minute walk depending on your exact location) and it’s convenient and secure. Another Park Mark accredited option, it features all the security provisions you expect, as well as disabled parking bays and special assistance points.
Meet & Great
With drop off and pick up right next to the terminal, this premium concierge service is definitely the discerning traveller’s choice. Again, it’s child’s play to use – just drive your car off at the Drop & Go Car Park next to the terminal building, follow the signs to the Meet & Greet cabin and park in one of the bays. Your vehicle will be safe and sound until your return, when you simply pick it up again from Drop & Go.
Short Stay & Pick Up
The BRS Short Stay Car Park is the right choice when you’re staying away for up to 6 days. Just a couple of minutes’ walk from the terminal, it features number plate recognition and full CCTV coverage, so your car’s as safe as houses. The Short Stay Car Park is also great for passenger pick up and drop off because it’s so close to Departures and Arrivals. This is yet another BRS car park with ample parking bays for special assistance travellers – just push the buzzer on entry if you need help from customer service staff.
