Thousands of people are expected to visit Bournemouth between Thursday, August 31 to Sunday, September 3 to take in the aircraft displays.

It will feature the likes of the Typhoon, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and the Chinook.

That's of course alongside the Red Arrows, with more announcements on the line-up expected soon.

On the Bournemouth Air Festival website, it recommends a couple of car parks which "are usually less busy and just a short stroll from the beach".

These are the Avenue Road Car Park (BH2 5SL) and the Richmond Hill Multi-storey Car Park (BH1 1JD).

Bournemouth Air Festival adds: "Before arriving please familiarise yourself with the Air Festival Traffic Restrictions plan, you can also view a live map of road closures and restrictions in place across all Bournemouth.

"Remember to always park responsible [sic], vehicles parked illegally will be towed away in restricted areas."

Other car parks in the town that could work but are slightly further away from the beach include the Cotlands Road car park, the Durley Chine car park, the Queens Road car park and the West Hill car park.

Bournemouth Air Festival has also reminded drivers that any vehicles which park illegally during the event will be liable to be towed.
