Arrangements for Coaches at the Cuckoo Fair


Coach parking is ONLY available at Trafalgar School  SOUTH .

This is only accessible from the A338 with coaches joining the A338 at either Salisbury or Ringwood.

Note there is NO access to the A338 through the village on the day of the fair.

There is also NO space for a coach to turn around on the Eastern (New Forest) side of the village.  Coaches will get stuck and maybe fined by Wiltshire Police.  For full details of how to access the Fair please

Booking Coach Spaces

Due to the limited space for coach parking at Trafalgar school, (maximum of 6 coaches), a parking space cannot be guaranteed.  Therefore it would be advisable for any coach companies to pre-book a space prior to the event.  This can be done by a phone call to Trafalgar School on 01725 550300.

Cash payment would need to be made on arrival and a receipt can be provided.

Passenger Duty of Care

Temporary parking for unloading/loading may be possible for those without a parking space, depending upon traffic levels.  Coaches must then be parked well away from Downton to avoid congestion and enable access for emergency vehicles.  We would also like to remind all coach operators that as the passengers  are your paying customers the duty of care remains with yourselves throughout their trip with you, including the time they are at the Fair.
