    King’s Standing and Broadstone car parks are suitable for blue badge parking, with access onto flatter terrain with some spectacular views.
  • Many of the Forest rides are unsuitable for wheel-chairs due to the bumpy, steep terrain. However, from Long car park, there is a relatively flat section. Fine views can also be enjoyed from Ridge and Broadstone car parks.
  • The Forest Centre car park is nearest to the visitor centre and toilets. Coaches should park at nearby Broadstone car park.
  • No vehicles may be parked on the Forest after midnight, until 6am. Overnight stays in vehicles are not permitted in the Forest car parks.
