Our car park is situated across the road from the Hall and grounds, on the opposite side of the A6.

The distance from the car park to the Hall is approximately 366 metres and includes some gravel surface and 30 steps. We ask that visitors take special care when crossing the busy A6 and note that the car park can become extremely crowded during special events, in which case, overflow parking is provided in the field beyond.


By Road – Haddon Hall is situated on the A6 between Bakewell and Rowsley, 2 miles (3.2 km) south of Bakewell. The Hall has a dedicated car park on the A6.

If using Sat Nav or other navigation software, we recommend that you input directions specifically to our car park (A6, Bakewell, DE45 1LA) to avoid you being incorrectly directed to an off-road site. Alternatively, use directions for Bakewell or Rowsley, then follow the brown tourist signs for Haddon Hall. The car park is clearly signposted from both directions.
