Car Park Status

banner-parking.jpg

If you are coming to the Peak District by car, please help us create a safer National Park for our communities and other visitors #PeakDistrictProud.

  • Be willing to change your destination  Have a few ideas of different places to visit in case you arrive somewhere and it's busy.
  • Only park in a car parking place  Don't park anywhere outside a car park place. Emergency vehicles may need to travel at speed down a road, and roadside parking creates problems for them. Don't park across a gateway, our farmers are busy and need to get to their animals at all times.
  • Keep to social distancing When you park at a car park, wait in your car until the pay machine is free or queue safely and considerately. Maintain distance from other people.

Car park status updates

UPDATE FREQUENCY: Information on the status of Peak District car parks is provided to us from a wide range of sources. If the latest update is not from today, this will be because we have not received current information on that location. The National Park Authority is unable to monitor all the locations directly from the range of operators below. This service is currently running as a pilot following changes in Covid-19 access restrictions.

The list below shows which popular pay and display car parks are currently open and how busy they are. Most free to use car parks are not listed here.

If a car park has a red dot, please do not travel to this area, choose somewhere less busy, you might discover a great new place to enjoy. You may wish to avoid car parks with amber dots as these areas could be increasingly busy.

PARKING PERMITS: Please note National Park Authority annual permits may only be used in car parks identified with the grey millstone logo below. This does not affect Blue Badge holders.
