Visiting Parking Charges Parking charges apply at all car parks. Bradgate Park Pay and Display parking tickets are valid at all our car parks on the day of issue. Machines take cash only (except for one machine nearest the Tearoom at Newtown Linford that can take contactless card payments and one at Hallgates by the Toilet Block that is suitable for cards with pin number), so please bring the correct change, as machines do not take notes/give change. For motorbikes, please pay and carry the ticket with you if you can not fix it on your vehicle. Tickets must be displayed correct face up (full guidance on how to input numbers and display tickets is on machines). We have invested in sticky tickets for windows for the main Bradgate Park machines. Please check your ticket before you leave your car to ensure it is displaying correctly. Please do not 'pass on' day tickets, as a charity we have to raise over £1 million pounds a year to care for the Park and your car parking contribution assists us greatly in this target. The Trust does work with an external company regarding enforcement and non-payment or incorrect display may result in a fine. Please ensure as you leave your car the ticket is displayed correctly (not having blown as you close your car doors) with the correct details entered and clearly showing. Our machines offer clear guidance on how to enter details. Parking for Coaches (large) is available at Bradgate Park Newtown Linford and Hunts Hill car parks. Regarding coach parking at Netwtown Linford please contact our Estate Office in advance. There is no coach parking at Swithland Wood due to access availability. Please note that Blue Badge holders are not exempt from parking charges and must purchase a Pay and Display ticket. There are marked bays close to the Park entrance at Newtown Linford and Hallgates car parks. Regular visitors with a Blue Badge can benefit from concessionary rates on season ticket purchases.
