Car park prices

Car park charges - Pay on foot system

Charges are related to the length of your visit with fees starting from as little as £1.

  1. Take a ticket at the entrance barrier
  2. Retain your ticket until the end of your visit and pay for your stay on exit at one of our four pay stations three of which are cashless and situated in the car park and one which accepts cash and card at the Visitor Centre.

The system involves a barrier and automatic number plate recognition (ANPR).

For standard day tickets, visitors are required to take a ticket and pay on exit according to how long they have stayed. Season ticket holders will not require a physical ticket to enter and exit the car park as their vehicle registration numbers will be automatically recognised when they approach the barrier.

Please note that entry to the car park is permitted from 5am until 10pm daily - we do not permit overnight parking.
