From Monday 4th September we will be offering a reduced car parking fee of £2.50 to visitors arriving after 3pm. This offer applies Monday to Friday only. 

The Mill Car Park is located next to Rufford Lake and has access to the woodland and lake walk. You will also have access to our Boating Lake and a number of catering facilities located in the Mill Courtyard.

Rufford is very popular during school holidays and weekends, so we would highly recommend arriving early to avoid waiting for parking spaces.

Please note we do have limited car park capacity so there may be occasions that the car park is closed. We always endeavour to reopen as soon as spaces become available. Peak hours are between 11.30am – 2pm, and we would advise arriving early to enjoy a full day at the park!
