Vehicle access
Bushy Park is temporarily closed to vehicular traffic. Currently it is not possible to drive through or park in Bushy Park.

Car parks at our inner parks (Hyde and Regent's) have now reopened, but car parks at our outer parks (Bushy, Richmond and Greenwich) remain closed* for the time being. Please follow the Government's guidance on transport by walking or cycling to the parks and, wherever possible, stick to your local green space.

* Exceptions are:
  • Blue Badge holders visiting Richmond Park, who can access car parking facilities at Sheen Gate car park from 07:00 to 19:00, Monday to Sunday. Stewards will admit them on presentation of their Blue Badge. Within the Royal Parks, Blue Badge holders can park for up to four hours free of charge. It is an offence to park anywhere outside of designated car parking facilities.
  • NHS staff working at Kingston Hospital only may park at Kingston Gate car park in Richmond Park. NHS staff requiring a permit should contact Kingston Hospital personnel department directly. Access is via Kingston Gate only.
Please ensure you regularly check our updates page for the very latest information about park closures and access to facilities.
