Car Parking

UPDATE JUNE 2020:

TO ASSIST WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING WE ARE OPERATING A ONE WAY PEDESTRIAN ACCESS SYSTEM FROM THE CARPARK.

ONCE VEHICLES ARE PARKED IN THE CARPARK, WE ARE ASKING CUSTOMERS TO THEN ENTER THE GARDENS ON FOOT BY THE MAIN GATES TO THE HALL AS INDICATED BY THE SIGNS.

We have a Visitor Car Park that holds up to 90 vehicles, and we are able to make special arrangements for coach parties on request.

We also have disabled parking spaces next to our Visitor Centre.

Please be advised that the local supermarkets now enforce a strict two-hour parking rule but that alternative public car parking is available across the road from the Gardens behind the old railway station on Robertson Close.

SUNDAY BAND CONCERT PARKING:
We respectfully ask visitors coming to our band concerts to consider coming to the venue early in order to avoid parking problems caused by high volumes of traffic on band concert Sundays. Alternative parking is available in the free carpark on Robertson Close, across the Balk from the Gardens behind the old railway station, and our staff are in the area to marshal vehicles during busy periods. Owing to increased pressure upon the Gardens and cafe on these days, we now have a no coaches policy on band concert Sundays.
