Where you can park with a Blue Badge

Your Blue Badge means that you can park in more places, longer and in some cases, free of charge.

On-street parking, including in a residents’ parking scheme area

With a valid Blue Badge on display in your vehicle, you can park:

  • on a single or double yellow line for up to three hours in England and Wales, unless there’s a ban on loading or unloading. There may be other local restrictions, so always check any signs before you park
  • all day in any on-street pay and display parking bay in the city of Bristol, free of charge
  • all day in any permit holder parking bay, shared use parking bay, or pay and display bay in a residents’ parking scheme area, free of charge
  • all day in any on-street limited waiting bay in the city of Bristol
  • in any on-street disabled parking bay showing the Blue Badge sign. Some are limited to three hours and this will be shown on the signs

Off-street parking

Car parks are all different, so check the signs before you park.
