DISABLED PARKING POLICY
The level streets and excellent transport links makes Brighouse a great place to visit if you are disabled. Many hundreds of visitors with disabilities attend our events and have a great day out. We also welcome assistance dogs and dogs in general. The number of people attending our events means disabled parking is at a premium. We therefore suggest arriving early and parking in the disabled bays (with a blue badge) which are available in the town centre car parks (see map). The whole town centre is closed for these events, allowing easy access for wheelchairs.
