1 days


Enjoy a fabulous time at Bridgwater Guy Fawkes Carnival – the UK’s oldest carnival and one of the largest illuminated carnival processions in Europe. Held annually on the first Saturday in November, this carnival takes place in Bridgwater, Somerset.

Please note that this is an evening event, held outdoors and goes ahead whatever the weather! So wrap up warm and be prepared for any weather conditions. The illuminated carnival procession takes approximately two hours to pass any one point on the route and is a mixture of carnival carts (some 100ft long!), walking entries (groups and individuals), marching bands and charity collection carts. Please therefore be prepared to stand for a long period of time. After the carnival procession finishes there is a unique firework display held on the High Street called ‘squibbing’. It gets very busy in this area and squibbing is viewed entirely at your own risk.

We depart Bridgwater at approximately 22:30 to start our homeward journey back to South Wales so this trip has a much later than usual return time. Please expect to arrive back early hours of the morning. Selected pickup points only for this day trip.
