Car park & shuttle bus service

From our brand new 1000-space car park, purchase your gardens and house tickets or have your membership scanned. Then enjoy a short ride on one of our shuttle buses which leave regularly, taking you directly to the North Fountain. The house and other amenities are then a short 100m walk.

Mobility assistance vehicle

Our new purpose- built mobility assistance vehicle can transport you from the North Fountain to the house or restaurant should you need it, with 10 seats and space for a wheelchair. Our team of volunteers will be happy to help with your requirements.

Walking from the new car park

Enjoy the scenery as you walk up a steady incline on the grass track footpath, from the car park to reach the main gardens.  With lovely views at the top over the Vale, the walk should take 15 - 20 minutes. Our path can be used at either the beginning or end of your day.
