Parking

Parking

The funds raised from parking are a vital source of income for the on-going maintenance of the site.

You can pay by app using your smart phone, with a credit or debit card, or good old fashioned coins at the machines located outside the Visitor Centre and in the woodlands car park just before you leave, or within 48 hours of your visit via the Park with ease website.

Parking charges are vital to fund the continued management of Queenswood. All money raised through the parking charges is spent on site including on: staff, buildings, utilities and toilet facilities, path maintenance, woodland management and tree safety, playground maintenance and more.

Blue Badge Holders

free day permit is available to Blue Badge holders: please register by bringing your Blue Badge and vehicle registration number to the Visitor Centre on arrival. If you are visiting when the Visitor Centre is closed you will need to pay for parking.

If you have a Blue Badge, live in Herefordshire and visit regularly, you may apply for a free annual permit to allow you to visit anytime without needing to register on each visit. For more details, please go to the Visitor Centre or contact the team on 01432 530088 or by email:  info@queenswoodandbodenhamlake.org.
