Getting outside for exercise is of course important, but please don't take any unnecessary risks, especially in the cold and icy weather.
By staying safe and staying local you can help reduce the pressure on our emergency services.
Help keep our emergency staff and hospital beds free for those that need them most.

Most car parks are open.
We manage car parks around the National Park, as do the National Trust and local councils. There are also free smaller car parks in more remote areas.
Please park responsibly, within marked bays if they exist, keeping away from verges and leaving enough room for manoeuvre.
Charges are displayed at the car parks and on this website. Just click on the location for more details:
All car parks have blue badge holder spaces - please display your blue badge. Our charges apply to all vehicles, including blue badge holders. However we do allow an extra hour for blue badge holders. In order to qualify, please fill in the form below:
