We’ve got lots to offer at Walton Hall and Gardens so make sure you plan your visit and make the most of our facilities whilst you’re here. Our park is free to enter, just pay for parking!

You do not need to book to visit Walton Hall and Gardens. Just turn up, pay for parking and enjoy your day. However, during busy periods, there may be queuing systems in place at The Children’s Zoo and for our outdoor games – see opening times below. For High Ropes, we suggest booking your place before you arrive via Jungle Parc’s website

Remember we’re dog-friendly too so bring your four legged friends with you and let them explore our gardens, but we do ask that they not go into the children’s zoo as some of the animals are a little worried by them.

Getting here


All of the toilets across the estate are open.

We have accessible toilets and baby change facilities available too.

Car parking

The overflow car park is currently closed due to the recent adverse weather conditions severely affecting the ground. Parking on site is currently limited to our main car park, so we’d be grateful if you could please consider alternative travel arrangements when visiting us. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

Walton Hall and Gardens operates a pay and display car park. Contactless is available. Accessible parking bays are available.

Daily charges:

  • Mon – Fri: £3
  • Sat – Sun and bank holidays: £4
  • Coaches: £8

To prevent congregating at the pay and display machines, plan your visit by downloading the Ringo App to pay for your car parking. If you have difficulty in doing this you can call 01925 950 080. The site location number is 18157.
