Car Parking

Currently, the car parking situation is as follows: 
  • Archive users will be offered a £7 membership to the Trust when they arrive on site - for regular users this will be the best option. 
  • The Trust has now introduced a new one off car parking charge of £5. This will be the most suitable option for one-off archive visitors, including overseas visitors who don't intend to return within one year.  This charge will allow entrance to both the Archive and Museum. 
  • Archive users who arrive on foot with no requirement to park a vehicle will be granted free access to the Archive only. We have been asked to escort Archive users to the Study Centre - please await arrival of a member of the Archives team at the hut.
