Where to Park

Unfortunately, as we are located on the top of a hill, we do not have our own car park. See information on where you can park your car below.

There are 4 main car parks in Matlock Bath. These are all run by Derbyshire Dales District Council, and therefore are all pay and display- so don't forget your change!

Matlock Bath Train Station- SatNav DE4 3NT

We recommend parking here as it is the closest car park to the Heights and also has a dedicated access path straight to our base station. It is also the biggest car park in Matlock Bath and the only one with spaces for coaches.

Temple Road- SatNav DE4 3NR

The next closest car park is at the opposite end of the village. It is also a pay and display car park and is approximately a 15 minute walk through Matlock Bath to our Cable Car Base Station. As you are driving, head up the hill signposted for Gulliver's and the car park is on the left.

Pavilion- SatNav DE4 3NR

Across the street from Temple Road is a smaller car park, located outside the Matlock Bath Pavilion (Big pink building). To reach the Heights from here is another approximate 15 minute walk through the village. 

Artist's Corner- SatNav DE4 3PS

If you are driving to Matlock Bath and coming through Matlock, this is the first car park you will come to. It is the second largest car park in the area, and again takes about 15 minutes to walk to our Cable Car Base Station. 


If you would like to visit us during peak periods and school holidays, you may find that these car parks fill up very quickly. If this is the case and you are struggling to find a space, we recommend that you park in Matlock Train Station just down the road and get the train to Matlock Bath. The SatNav postcode for this is DE4 3NA. If you do take the train, show your tickets to our ticket office to receive a 20% discount on your Heights of Abraham entry (this discount is not valid in conjunction with any other offer, including the online tickets discount).
