Parking at Queen Elizabeth Country Park

We have one main car park on Butser Hill and 7 different car parks on the forest side. Forest and Butser car parks are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system means you’ll only pay for the time you’ve spent at the park. All income generated from parking is reinvested back into the parks.
