    In Oxford they have double yellow lines or residents only parking everywhere within a 10 mile radius of the centre. In the few places you are allowed to park they have parking meters that cost about £1.50 for 3 minutes. So in reality they aren't forcing so much as 'coercing' people into using the park and rides.
    10 miles? Are you sure? That would take you all the way out to the M40 and beyond."

VISIT: The Queen and Prince Phillip are to visit Worcester

First published in News by

DETAILS of the Queen’s visit to Worcester have now been released ahead of her return to the city next week.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are set to visit next Wednesday as part of their Diamond Jubilee tour.

Thousands are expected to welcome the Queen in what will be her first visit in 10 years.

She and the Duke of Edinburgh will begin their visit with a tour of the Hive before officially opening it with a plaque unveiling.

They will then travel by car along Angel Place, onto Broad Street then along the High Street before arriving for a lunch reception at the Guildhall.

This will be followed by a chance for the royal couple to meet residents on the High Street, where VisitWorcester will be organising two themed displays celebrating Worcester’s heritage.

They will then travel by car along Pump Street, turn right on to Friar Street before turning right onto College Street en route to the cathedral for a concert.

Joining the local community, they will listen to a celebration of the Diamond Jubilee in words and music.

Worcester City Council is urging people not to travel into the city by car and to follow guidance to help ensure an enjoyable and safe experience.

Free park and ride services will run from Perdiswell on the day every 10 minutes from 7am and from Sixways every 20 minutes from 9am.

Car parks in Copenhagen Street and King Street will be closed until about 2.30pm and parking for blue badge holders will be available elsewhere in the city.

The Butts will be closed to traffic during the royal visit but the Cattle Market car park will be open.
