Bridgwater Guy Fawkes Carnival is held annually on the first Saturday in November at Bridgwater in Somerset, England.
Located in the heart of the West Country with easy access by road, head south from Bristol on the M5 and you will find us between junctions 23 and 24 of the M5 motorway. We are also served by rail.
If you are coming via the M5 please note the road into Bridgwater from junction 24 will close at 6.30 p.m., if you are likely to arrive later than 6.30 p.m. you should proceed to junction 23 as this road into Bridgwater will remain open all evening.
Please note the procession route will follow the same route as in 2017, when the procession reaches the top of the High Street it will turn right into Mount Street with the procession finishing at the traffic light junction with The Clink.
