Remember your loose change for the car parking machines. All visitors receive 1.5 hours of free parking. Beyond that National Trust members park for free, while there's an hourly charge for non-members.

Installation of car parking machines

In 2017, the National Trust launched a new roll out of pay and display machines at sites across the UK. Four machines were installed in Morden Hall Park's car park at the end of March 2017. 

All visitors to Morden Hall Park car park now need to display a valid ticket in order to park, no matter how long they are parking for.


All visitors to the car park receive 1.5 hours parking free parking after entering their leaving time into the pay and display machine and displaying their ticket on the dashboard.

National Trust members can park for free after scanning their membership card, with a maximum 5 hours stay.

Non-National Trust members need to pay to park for longer than 1.5 hours; each hour after the first 1.5hrs will be £1.50 with a maximum 5 hour stay.

What's happening in the overflow car park?

If you park in our overflow car park take some time to appreciate the improvements being made by our Urban Ranger Club. The team of 11-24 year olds have been working together to create a continuous corridor of wildlife habitats around the outskirts of the car park as well as a community kitchen garden to benefit nature and people.
