Here are some maps – click the links and each will open as a PDF in a new tab/window.
Details of road closures and changes both in the lead-up to and during the parades. This includes closure of Victoria Avenue lay-bys in setting up and dismantling the arena
There are a number of public car parks and multistorey car parks in St Helier, including Patriotic Street, Sand Street, Esplanade, Pier Road, Green Street, Snow Hill and the Waterfront.
All of these are within 10 to 20 minutes’ walking distance of the main arena and are subject to the usual availability and charges as well as terms and conditions.
Additional spectator parking on a first come basis will be available at First Tower car park and St Andrew’s Park during both Battle Day and the Moonlight Parade with access to the arena from Paris Lane or Tynneville Lane.
However, due to likely traffic congestion, spectators are advised to take the bus or taxi wherever possible to and from St Helier. There are also taxi ranks at the airport and in St Helier at Library Place, Snow Hill and the Weighbridge (bus station).
If you are visiting Jersey, please check with your hotel concierge who may also be able to arrange private transportation, as well as taxi transfers.
Please note that due to safety reasons there is no parking under any circumstances within the immediate vicinity of the arena.
Disabled Parking & Disabled Access
Please note there is no designated disabled parking at the arena, but drop off facilities are available at First Tower and in front of the Grand Hotel on the Esplanade.
Mobility scooters provided by local company Shopmobility (not Battle organisers) will be located at both the First Tower and West Park entrances. Please note: pre-booking of these scooters is not possible and is subject to availability.
The Disabled area of the arena, which is designated for wheelchair ticket holders only, is to the west side of Stand C, – click here for a map of the arena area. Ticket marshals will be available to direct you to this area.
Public Transport (Bus)
Public buses will be operating as usual, but may be subject to delays due to traffic congestion. Click here for bus numbers and timetables.
Getting to & from the Arena
Due to the expected heavy traffic coupled with the volume of spectators making their way to and from the arena on Victoria Avenue, please allow sufficient time for your journey! Organisers will accept no responsibility for any spectator arriving late due to conditions outside of the arena and beyond its control.
Victoria Avenue will be closed in both directions between 9:30am and 6pm on Battle Day (Thursday) and between 6:15pm and Midnight on the day of Moonlight Parade (Friday).
Travelling to catch a boat or plane?
If you area travelling to and from the airport or harbour please leave sufficient time for your road journey as delays on Battle days are inevitable! This is because of increased volume of traffic and pedestrians and because Victoria Avenue will be closed: you need to travel on the inner road or by missing St Helier altogether.
Traffic delays are also likely on Thursday morning and Friday evening as floats make their way to/from the arena on Victoria Avenue. Please allow extra time for your journey or take alternative route.
Port authorities, Battle organisers and transport providers can not take responsibility for any passenger missing a flight/ferry due to road delays, so please build in plenty of time for your journey.
