Parking and prices

There are four car parks. Our main car park, the horsebox / overflow car park and the Plane Spotters car park (adjacent to the runway) have parking charges. Butley Corner car park, which can be found north of the B1084, a short distance from the entrance to the forest centre, is a free car park. Please note our car park machines are cash only and we are unable to give change.  

Plane Spotters car park charges (adjacent to the runway) - We have decided to begin charging at this car park from April 2019. This contribution will directly support Rendlesham Forest's facilities, whether it's maintaining paths and play equipment, wildlife conservation, litter-picking or putting in a bench.
