Travelling to Bath
Bath is a busy tourist city and there is always pressure on car parking. Please leave plenty of time for travelling to Bath and getting to the Theatre Royal.
There is free parking on the Claverton Down campus. We suggest that graduands and their guests park on campus, take a bus into the city and walk to the Pavilion for gowning followed by the Theatre to register and be seated.
Who should attend
Graduating students, ticket-holding family and friends and University staff.
The Theatre Royal is accessible to wheelchair users, and there is lift access from the Theatre foyer to the Stall and Royal Circle levels.
The theatre does not have an induction loop system, but does have a Sennheiser infra-red system.
Assistance dogs are permitted within the Theatre's auditorium.
Blue badge parking
There are limited parking spaces available for blue badge holders near the Theatre Royal. All of Bath's council-run car parks also include specifically designated parking spaces.
