A friend of mine put me on to this site so please can I ask is it safe to park my car in Landport on the 5th of November? We came by train last year and it took to long to get home.

I wouldn't as Commercial Square's procession goes down there, and there is likely to be lots of people. Also parking is awful.

We find it hard enough to park our own cars. With outsiders taking up parking spaces it leaves the people of landport not being able to park their cars especially when they come home from work. If you have to come to Lewes then use the trains and stay away from landport with your cars.

I parked my car at Landport last year and my wing mirror got ripped off - cost me 150 pounds to get mended. Like the other threads said - Landport is already full of residents cars and it is very difficult to get outwhen there is a procession running through it!

You can laugh all you want but if anyone parks outside my house then their mirrors wont be there in the morning. Cheeky ba**ards. Get a bloody train if your so desperate to see the parade.

Please don't park in the town. I am sorry the train is a bit rubbish, but that isn't our fault. You do get an amazing free night of entertainment, unmatched anywhere in the world, after all. Those people who live in the town centre have no choice but to move their cars out of the line of fire, wether they like bonfire or not. And because of our money grabbing parking scheme, they have little enough space as it is, without visitors clogging it up too. Have a great night, and remember that if you come by train, you can enjoy an extra pint of Harvey's on the way home.

Thank you for making the point that it's free to the spectator Sashka. I hope you'll be very generous when the charity boxes come round, Mr Finch!
If you get here early enough, Tesco's car park has to be the best place to park. That way you can leave when you like, you don't have to wait for the road closures to finish before you can drive out. Before I moved to Lewes, we used to park in town in the afternoon and could never leave again until well after 11.

I would like to thank some of you for your comments. Last year I held a bonfire party and all the money raised will be given to the most deserving bonfire society. If you have any suggestions please put them here, and again many thanks.

Firstly david Flinch, why do you need a train to get back to nevill or wherever it is in Lewes you live? Secondly, if there was a society named the 'Tongue in Cheek Society' you could both donate your profits and become chairman of it.

Mr Finch, ALL the bonfire societies will have nominated charities, as they do each year so buy their programmes see who the charities are and make the donation accordingly.
Let the train take the strain.
