Entry to YSP is free
You only need to pay for parking

There are unofficial car parks operating next to YSP. The payment to these goes to private enterprise and takes money away from our charitable work. Please help us to continue the work that we do by parking in an official YSP car park. Every penny we raise from car parking goes towards our running costs.

Pay for parking any time during your visit or up to 7 days afterwards. YSP is a charity and your parking fee supports everything we do.
