Is there a charge for parking?

Yes, charges for parking have been put in place at our Engine Yard Car Park & Main Castle Car Park. When you arrive at Belvoir, please read the signage properly and adjust the machines using the + and – buttons to enter the amount of hours you require during your stay. You can pay at any point throughout your stay, however unless paying for all day parking, we advise you pay on exit so you know how many hours are owed.

PLEASE NOTE: the machines do not calculate how much is owed, it is down to the individual to note what time you enter the car park and therefore how much to pay.

Reasons for introducing car parking charges

In 2020 it was brought to our attention that our parking situation really needed improving for the safety of our community, visitors and staff. Therefore, part of the recently implemented charges will go straight towards the upkeep of our site; fixing potholes, maintaining signage & fencing, landscaping, daily litter collection, keeping the nearby roads safe and maintaining public facilities at both our ticket office and Engine Yard retail village. We plan to extend our parking areas and implement parking bay mapping throughout, which the charges will also go towards. Additionally, we are working with Highways to develop better access and roads.
