Car parking charges

Wakehurst parking is free for:

  • Garden entry ticket holders
  • Kew and Wakehurst members
  • Kew member guests

Car park charges apply to National Trust members.

The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew has a longstanding relationship with the National Trust, meaning National Trust members enjoy free entry to Wakehurst. However, we are funded and managed by RBG Kew, not the National Trust, which means we need to ask for a parking contribution to keep our future thriving.

Together with the National Trust, we’re researching the best ways to protect nature, prevent biodiversity loss, and build a better tomorrow. We can’t do it without you. Thank you.


Up to 45 minutes – FREE

45 minutes to 150 minutes (2.5 hours) - £7.00

Over 150 minutes - £12.00

We operate automated number plate recognition technology at Wakehurst. This will provide a seamless entry and exit to our car park for all our visitors. For more information on how we use your personal data when parking at Wakehurst, please visit our Wakehurst car parking privacy notice.
