We have two versatile meeting spaces available for hire, the left image below is of the Cedar room which is available for meetings or training purposes. The middle image is the Lime room which is available for community use. Alternatively you can hire out both rooms as they are separated by a bi-fold door which can be opened to create one large space. If you’re interested in booking a room, why not pop down for a viewing? Email us at email@example.com to find out more.
The visitor centre is located at the Park Road North entrance to the park. If you are using a Sat Nav, we strongly recommend searching for Park Road North rather than using the postcode (LU5 5FU). From here you can follow the brown tourism road sign to Houghton Hall Park - there is a purple welcome sign on Park Road North outside the entrance to the visitor centre car park.
Visiting on foot? Great! We always encourage visitors to walk to the park if possible, as this is a fantastic way to act sustainably while making sure not to miss out on any of what the park has to offer.
Visiting by public transport? We recommend using Traveline to plan your journey in advance from your starting location and navigating to Park Road North, Houghton Regis.
Visiting by car? There are 39 car parking spaces adjacent to the visitor centre – these are free to use, however please ensure that you display a free parking ticket from the machine if parking Monday - Friday 7am-6pm as the car park is subject to a 3 hour parking limit within these hours and enforcement patrols are in place. Access is via a 2.1m height barrier,
restricting vehicular access in excess of this height.
