To secure the park's future it must become self-financing. All money raised from the car park charges will go directly towards maintaining and improving the Country Park and House for everyone to enjoy. The Estate celebrated its 200th Anniversary in 2016 and it's vital we do everything to ensure it prospers over the next 200 years.
An annual season ticket costs just £40.00 for the whole year, equating to just 11p/day.
The Pay & Display machine charges can be paid for with cash (exact change is required); we hope to be able to accept credit/debit payment at the machines by the end of April:
Weekend Earlybird Parking is available, park until 10.30am for £1 - please see the ticket machine for details.
Parking at the Poole Road car park remains free of charge, with a maximum wait time of 2 hours.
Season tickets are valid for up to two vehicles at the same address. Only one vehicle can use the season ticket at any one time. A season ticket does not guarantee a parking space.
You will need to buy a ticket from the Pay & Display machine as it's the only way our team can ensure you have paid for your parking space.
Simply give us a call on 01202 262753 with details of the new vehicle. A £10 admin fee will be charged. Please return the old season ticket to the Estate Office as soon as you can:
Upton House Estate Office
Upton, Poole BH17 7BJ
