Purchase a ticket to park at Rufford Abbey

Daily Parking Pass

The car parking cost is £4 which greatly assists us with the day to day running costs of the park.

If you cannot book online due to all slots being sold out, or the option is no longer available on the date and slot of your choice, then car parking is still payable by card only on entrance to the park both at the Abbey end and Mill end entrance manned huts and via the Coach House cafe which is located in the courtyard & Saville restaurant (by the Abbey lawn).

To assist our staff please have your online payment email receipt ready for checking as you enter the park. We have made these changes to avoid people congregating in the areas around parking machines or needing to handle cash. If you pay on site via the car park huts, Coach House or Savile please have your receipt ready for checking on exit to the park.

Please note we do have limited car park capacity so there may be occasions that the park is closed but we endeavour to reopen as soon as spaces become available.
