Is there a charge for Car Parking?

Yes, there is a small daily charge of £4 per car for adventurers, including disabled parking. Please use the postcode KT9 2NE to be directed to our car park. Chessington is on the A243, just two miles from the A3 and M25 (junction 9 or 10). We are well signposted.

You can pre book your parking online and save time on the day. Otherwise just buy a ticket on the day from one of our Admissions kiosks or on your debit or credit card on exit. 

Please bear in mind that the Explorer Car Park is within a green belt area, so we need to work within confines of strict environmental regulations. We are using the car parking charges to improved the surface and drainage systems, as well as to improve pedestrian safety. All connecting roads, tracks and pathways, inspected daily, are repaired and maintained on a continual basis.

We appreciate our surfaces can be uneven in areas as part of the natural greenbelt landscape and we advise drivers to adapt driving behaviour according to conditions.

We also offer Express Car parking in our Lodge Gate Car Park. For more information please visit here.

10% of every car parking fee will be donated to the Chessington Conservation Fund which will help to protect the future of nature and wildlife through conservation work and education at Chessington Zoo, in the local community and worldwide.



We hope this answers your question.
