Parking

Ample, free parking is available on site.

Two parking spaces for registered disabled visitors are provided adjacent to the Visitor Centre (please ensure you display your blue badge). In the event that both disabled parking spaces are taken, additional vehicles displaying a disabled badge may drop-off passengers at the Visitor Centre, but must then be parked in the disabled spaces in the main car park. Regrettably, no more than 2 disabled badge holders are permitted to park in the vicinity of the Visitor Centre at any time.

Coach parking is available by prior arrangement.

Accessibility

Regrettably, the arboretum's terrain is not suitable for wheelchairs.

Motorised all-terrain mobility buggies are available (subject to suitable weather and ground conditions) on free loan to visitors with disabilities. Please book your buggy with the Visitor Services Team (01653 648598) at least 24 hours in advance of your visit to ensure availability. Please note that hoist facilities are not available and our staff cannot assist with manual transfers. Buggy users must be accompanied during their visit by an able-bodied adult.
