Country Park Car Parking

COUNTRY PARKS SERVICE – CAR PARK SEASON TICKETS INFORMATION.

In order to improve the collection of parking fees and improve security, pay on entry machines have been installed at the Car Parks at Beacon Hill, Market Bosworth Country Park and Watermead (North) Country Parks. At Broombriggs Farm, Burrough Hill, Bosworth Battlefield Visitor Centre, pay and display machines are available. It is, however, possible to buy a Car Park Season Ticket for all the Country Parks run by the Country Parks Service.

Benefits of a Season Ticket

• Valid for all Country Parks where charges are levied (except on Special Event Days, when special charges will apply).

• Valid for 12 months from the month of purchase

• Saves paying for car parking on each visit

• Offers a saving for regular visitors

• Can be used by anyone living in the same household

• Income from the sales of Car Park Season Tickets helps with the running and upkeep of the Country Parks.

How Much Will a Season Ticket Cost?

£60.00 per annum (incl. VAT) for all Country Parks plus a £10 returnable deposit.

How will the Scheme Operate?

You can purchase a Season Ticket by completing the attached form and posting it with your payment to the address given on the form. Display a valid Season Ticket in your vehicle on every visit to the Country Parks and you have no need to pay the daily parking charge. It is only valid for the parking of one vehicle at a time. An automatic pay on entry system has been introduced at some of the car parks and a proximity card will be issued with the Season Ticket.
