All day parking

If you want to spend all day enjoying our park, paying for all-day parking is a great option. All-day parking allows you to leave the park and return multiple times in the same day without having to pay each time.

Whether you want to take a leisurely stroll and stop off for a cup of tea in our café or spend a while exploring our historic chapel, there’s so much to do! All-day parking gives you the freedom to explore all the beauty and excitement of the park without worrying about running out of time.

Parking passes

Enjoy unlimited visits to our country park at a low cost with an annual parking pass. Buy one today and start saving!

Two vehicles are allowed on one permit if they’re registered at the same address. Only one vehicle can use the pass at any one time, so if both are in the park one will need to pay the normal parking charges.

Blue Badge annual parking passes for Royal Victoria Country Park are available to buy at the Cedar Rooms gift shop and information point. Remember to bring your Blue Badge with you.
