Queenswood Car Park (image: Herefordshire council)

Parking charges are vital to fund the continued management of Queenswood. All money raised through the parking charges is spent on site including on: staff, buildings, utilities and toilet facilities, path maintenace, woodland management and tree safety, playground maintenance and more.

Coronavirus Update - Parking

The usual parking charges outlined below still apply if you wish to come to the site for a walk as these funds are vital for the on-going maintanance of the site.  We do not encourage visiting at the moment given the current situation, but if you do, please respect the Government advice for social distancing

**Blue badge holders**  - Usually we offer free parking for Blue Badge holders when they register their car in the visitor centre. However, as the visitor centre is closed we are unable to process these, so we are unable to offer free parking. Please pay at the machine during this time. We are sorry for any inconvinience caused. 

Thank you for understanding.
