Picnic pitches are priced depending on location, with a small number of riverside pitches in Row (A) commanding the highest price.

It will not be possible for you to spread, so if you think you might need more space, please purchase more pitches.
Picnic Pitches are for picnickers only and all cars should be parked in the main car park area. A trolley service is available to enable you to easily move your things from your car to your pitch.
There will be a free of charge trolley service in the car park to help with the transfer of gazebos, tables, chairs and your picnic between the car park and your picnic pitch.
You will be asked to pay a deposit but this is refundable on the return of the trolley within 60 minutes.
Please note that the service is run by external contractors who will only provide trolley services to those with a Picnic Pitch Ticket. You may be asked to show your ticket.
