Car Parking
Wyvern Multi-Story and Isington Street - Closed

Swindon Borough Council have now closed the Islington Street open air car park and the Wyvern multi-storey car park, which is due to be demolished.

Recommended Car Parks

The Wyvern has several other car parks within easy walking distance including the Whalebridge multi-storey, which is further down Islington Street and Regent Circus car park.

Whalebridge Car Park

If you require easy access to the theatre, we recommend using the Whalebridge car park and entering through the side pod if you are sitting in the stalls. If you are sitting in the circle or boxes or coming to the restaurant, we recommend you use Regent Circus car park and enter through the main doors in Theatre Square.

Please telephone the Ticket Office on 01793 524481 if you are unsure or require further information.

Evening rates after 6pm are £1.00 for up to two hours and £2.00 for over two hours at Whalebridge.

Regent Circus

Regent Circus has a total of 450 spaces, split across two well-lit and secure car parks, just steps away from the Wyvern Theatre.

There is a dedicated leisure car park facility on the same level as the restaurant and cinema arcade; follow signs to the Cinema Car Park from the main roads. This car park has two tariffs – one for 08:00-18:00 and one for post 18:00.
