Bristol Parkway Railway Station is one of the newest stations on the CrossCountry network, having opened in 1972 as one of the first ‘Park and Ride’ stations in the UK. Today, the station is the third busiest in the West of England, after Bath Spa and Bristol Temple Meads.
The development of the station led to new commercial developments in the area, bringing with them new jobs and housing. The station building was redeveloped over the years and this work was completed in 2001, bringing the station up to date. Bristol Parkway now offers all benefits of modern conveniences you would expect from a twenty-first century railway station.
There is parking for 1,140 cars and 156 bicycles. The car park is fully accessible and step-free access is available throughout the station. The toilet facilities are accessible and support the National Key scheme. Step-free access to trains is possible and ramps and wheelchairs are available if necessary. Baby change facilities are provided, as well as waiting rooms, shops, and free public WiFi.
As one of the country’s major cities, Bristol is easy to get to and is well-served on the CrossCountry network. Popular local routes include Cardiff to Bristol Parkway and Bath Spa to Bristol Parkway. You can even get from Edinburgh to Bristol Parkway in under seven hours.
