The National Park Authority manages around 40 car parks and parking areas; we charge on 14 of these and use the income to help us maintain the car parks and paths in the Park. The charging period runs from 15 March to 7 November (inclusive). During this period all vehicles must display either a valid Pay and Display ticket, a pre-purchased Season Ticket or purchase a digital ticket via PayByPhone. Charging hours run from 9am to 7pm at each site.
New for 2021
Cashless payments coming soon
From Monday 15 March 2021 people that don’t wish to use the existing on-site coin machines will be able to use PayByPhone, which allows people to purchase tickets via an app, text, a phone call or online.
Motorists will need to be aware that use of PayByPhone from the car parks will depend on network coverage, which will vary depending on the location and your provider. While you may wish to pay for a ticket before travelling to the car park, this does not guarantee a space will be available. For additional support please visit the PayByPhone website.
Order Season tickets online
Season tickets and seven-day tickets are available to order via our online shop.

Pre-purchased Season Tickets
Any vehicles that are not displaying a valid Pay and Display ticket, pre-purchased ticket or have not purchased a digital ticket via PayByPhone are liable to receive a fixed penalty notice as our charging car parks are regularly patrolled by Parking Enforcement Officers. Please see on-site signs for full terms and conditions.
Sleeping overnight in a vehicle is not permitted in the Authority’s car parks. This can be enforced with a fixed penalty notice. If you have need of overnight accommodation, please use local accommodation facilities and consider the impact on the environment and the local community.
