Motorists heading to the air show will be steered towards two large park-and-ride sites on the outskirts of the town.

But there is also the chance to buy premium parking spots at three locations in easy walking distance of the seafront.

The 500-space park and rides will operate from racecourse, for people coming in from the Norwich direction and the north, and at Beacon Park for drivers heading coming in from the south. Fees range from £10-£18.

All seafront car parks will be closed for the weekend – but there are 600 spaces including Blue Badge slots – at premium parking locations at North Drive, South Beach Parade and Euston Road. Premium parking daily tickets costing £35 and park-and-ride tickets are now on sale via the website

Air show director Asa Morrison said: “With car parks and streets closed, for security reasons, and some streets zoned for resident parking only – we are encouraging people to buy their parking now, so they can come and enjoy the fun without searching for a spot.

“Our aim is to make it as hassle-free as possible for drivers – with a combination of park-and-ride and some convenient spaces close to the seafront. A lot of planning has gone into the parking in consultation with the police and borough council to ensure it is easy to book, easy to use, safe and convenient.”

First Eastern Counties will be running the park-and-ride bus services.

Other travel information, including trains, will be announced later.
