There is some on street parking around the Colosseum. Just north of the venue the other-side of the Avenue car park is a residential area accessed via a road called ‘The Avenue’. It is between a 5 - 10 minute walk to the venue from this area. The Avenue and the adjacent residential streets have have single yellow lines where restrictions don't apply on a Sunday. The earlier you get there the closer you will be able to park to the venue.
The parking is MAINLY free on a Bank Holiday Sunday but please take time to look for the nearest parking time plate so that you know you are parking legally.

Never park across drop kerbs or with your wheels on the pavement as you will get a ticket. Do not block any obvious access points or park on private property.

Please do not leave ANYTHING of value in your car and definitely do not leave anything on display valuable or not.
Do not leave loose change, coats, phone or GPS chargers or cradles or anything else on display in your car.
If you use a Sat Nav or phone cradle with a suction pad that leaves a mark on the inside of your windscreen then wipe the screen clean so there is no indication that either may be in your car.
Empty your glove box and leave it open so it is obvious nothing of value is in there.
There is a free cloakroom at the venue where you can leave anything of value.
