The Bradgate Park Trust offers a range of Car Park Season Tickets, as we recognise many people like to visit the Park regularly, often for short periods of time.  

Parking at Newtown Linford

For regular visitors a season ticket provides parking at a substantially discounted rate and can benefit people that visit once per fortnight or more frequently. These tickets also offer flexibility to come for short or longer periods. 

Features of the Bradgate Park Season Ticket include:-

  • Valid at all five Estate Car Parks at Bradgate Park and Swithland Wood

  • Saves the hassle of having to carry the correct cash for parking every time you visit

  • Can be used as often as you wish

  • Offers very significant savings for regular visitors.  

Please note: 

  1. Season Tickets are available for private cars, small vans and motorcycles only. Season Tickets must be clearly displayed in the windscreen. For motorbikes, please carry it with you when visiting.
  2. Season tickets are issued for the registered vehicle only and must not be altered by the holder or used in any other vehicle. Any tampered/altered season tickets will be treated as invalid.
  3. A small  admin charge of £5 is applicable for transfer to new vehicle registrations mid-term. This purely covers the cost of re-issuing permits and updating records.
  4. Season tickets are not available for coaches, mini coaches, large vans and horse boxes/trailers for which special parking charges apply.
  5. The car parks may not be used by commercial vehicles and season tickets can not be purchased for these.
  6. Please note each vehicle in a household must holds its own season ticket. (The Trust no longer issue a second season ticket for a car in the same household.)

The Bradgate Park Trust is an independent charity and the revenue we earn from car park charges is a vital part of our income. All the money we raise is used for the management, conservation and improvement of Bradgate Park and Swithland Wood.

Unauthorised parking , or display of an invalid/out of date ticket will incur penalties as advertised in all car parks through our enforcement contractor, Spring Parking Limited, who are a member of the British Parking Associations' Approved Operator Scheme.
