New car parking system at Carsington Water

Parking at Carsington

The car park at Carsington now has a new automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system. This is a system that will capture vehicle registration numbers on entry to the Carsington Visitor Centre and Millfield car parks. 

Blue Badge Holders

If you are a Blue Badge holder, you have the choice to park at our sites for free. If you’d like to receive free parking, please head to reception to show your blue badge and enter you registration number into the console. Failure to do this, or entering incorrect registration details could result in penalty charge notice.

If you park at Millfields or Sheepwash car parks, or if you visit outside of the visitor centre’s opening hours you can call the Carsington reception on 0330 6780 701 to add your blue badge for a 24 hour period by providing the badge’s unique reference number.
