Bolton Abbey have announced that their car parks will reopen on 28th May. Please note only Bolton Abbey Car Park and Riverside Car Park will open to begin with. Strid Wood Car Park will reopen in the coming weeks.

The reopening of the Estate has been planned with great caution and consideration to ensure they can protect their staff, their community and their visitors. The team thanks visitors for their patience and understanding while they have been busy behind the scenes putting this all in place.

All visitors to the Estate, including Season Ticket holders, staff passes and other pass holders (including YGHC&G Family Pass 2020 holders) receiving complimentary admission will now have to book their visits. This has been introduced to ensure they can monitor the number of people on the Estate. It will also help to maintain the flow of visitors arriving at any one time and reduce all contact upon arrival at the car park kiosk. If visitors encounter any problems while booking please contact Ticketline on 01618132222 or email
