In March of 2017, Morden Hall Park installed pay and display car parking machines. Charging begins on Monday 17 July. 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 new machines

In 2017, the National Trust is launching 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.  The machines are operating from Monday 17 July 2017. There will be a short grace period for those who haven’t visited the car park for a while, but after the grace period, all visitors to Morden Hall Park car park will need to display a valid ticket in order to park, no matter how long they are parking for.


All visitors to the car park will 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.
