Erddig car park improvements

We’re starting work on Monday 14 January to improve our car park.

What's happening?

Starting on Monday 14 January our car park improvements include landscaping to increase the number of parking spaces and improvements to drainage to prevent severe flooding like we’ve experienced in recent years. We’ll also be planting new hedging, trees and wildflowers to ensure nature is happy with the changes we make. The work is expected to continue for 12 weeks.

How will this affect my visit during the work?


The main orchard car park will be closed, so visitors will be parking in the inner walled car park with access managed by our visitor welcome team. Please follow their instructions and any onsite temporary signage. When this car park is full we’ll be directing visitors to park on our overflow field which will become muddy when wet. We’re installing temporary matting to help prevent this and to help protect the historic landscape.


There will be a lot of building equipment around while we improve drainage and the surface of the roadways. Some of this work may be noisy; sorry, please bear with us.

Keep up-to-date

When planning your visit to Erddig, please check our website for the latest parking information first, just in case there are any changes. All updates will be posted in the red note at the top of the website and on our social media channels.


What if the overflow car park becomes full?

Our car park can fill up quickly on peak days (weekends and school holidays between 11am-2pm). To avoid congestion and likely car park closures it’s best to visit outside our peak times. Arrive earlier or later in the day when the car park will be less busy.


If the overflow car park space becomes full (which is possible while this work takes place), we may have to close the car park for 45 minutes to an hour. This will help us to free up a lot of spaces and avoid queues on the driveway. We will keep everyone informed on our website and on our social media channels.


Getting here


It would really help us out if you can car share when visiting with friends and family, use public transport or park at Felin Puleston just of Hafod Road and enjoy a walk through in the parkland following our green waymarked route which is marked on the trail information below. Erddig’s main entrance is a twenty-minute walk.
