Parking at Megabus coach stop "Stratton Park"

Hi there,

I have to catch a coach from 'Stratton Park' at the weekend - just outside Sainsbury's and will be gone all day on Sunday. Does anybody know if I can park all day in the car park at the supermarket or opposite in Hobbycraft/Dunelm Mill?

Thanks

Dan

I can't answer your question specifically but thought I ought to check that you are going to Silverstone, as all the Megabuses to London now pick up elsewhere in Swindon.

Stratton Park used to be the megabus stop for London and I suspect was originally chosen because of parking availability. However whether they have tightened up on the parking rules I don't know.

Not sure what Phil-the-Bus means but my grandaughter is arriving from London on Megabus today and all their literature and website says Stratton Park. They seem to be the only people who call this area by that name, which is rather unhelpful. The Sainsbury's is known as Oxford Road, in case anyone else is looking for it

AUNTY - you are replying to a set of posts that are 3 year's old !

At that point Megabus had moved their Swindon pick up point away from Stratton Park, but the new stop was not popular so they moved in back a few months later !

Hi Freddy - yes that is still the case.

The explanation from the Megabus website is...

Swindon Stratton Park- The bus stop is on the Sainsburys Superstore side of the A420 (Swindon to Oxford Road). It is very close to the A419 Swindon bypass. This is called Stratton Park and is about 2 miles out of the Swindon Town Centre.

For future reference, you might also wish to know that that there are Megabus services now from London to Chippenham, which might be easier for you to get to from Malmesbury.
