Please note: Any cars left in the car park after the closing time will be locked in overnight until the opening time the following morning.

Flooding and Bridge Closure

The River Soar is prone to flood from time to time, making the area inaccessible and would lead to the closure of the bridge over the River Soar.

Please keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for flood updates and bridge closure information.
