The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead has confirmed the coach parking arrangements for groups visiting the royal wedding on Saturday, May 19. The Alma Road coach park will be open as usual, but the booking process is different for this specific event.

Spaces must be pre-booked and paid for via an online box office. There will be 80 spaces available and the cost per space is £100 including VAT, plus a £1.50 admin/postage fee for the day. Bookings are open now and spaces will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

The coach park will open on Saturday, May 19 at 0400hrs and close at 2200hrs. Pre-booked coaches must be parked by 0900hrs at the latest. Any operators who have not pre-booked will not be permitted to park.

Permits and further instructions will be sent at least five working days before the event.

Due to the nature of this event and the very high number of spectators expected in Windsor on the day, there will be no provision for drop-off anywhere in the town, nor any provision for coach parking outside of the coach park itself.

There will be extensive road closures from as early as 0600hrs on the day and coaches without the approved parking permit for the coach park will not be allowed past these road closures.

There will be a full closure of Windsor Castle on May 18 and 19.
