Car Parking at Kynren

For important information on each car park, click on the map.

If you are planning to arrive by car, you must purchase a parking voucher. We recommend that this is purchased at the same time as your show tickets.

We have several car parks in and around Bishop Auckland, with regular shuttle bus transfers running between each car park and the Kynren show site. Subject to availability, you can choose the car park which suits your requirements best, and book shuttle bus transfers to take you from your chosen car park to the show site and back again after the performance (£2 return per passenger).

Please be aware that bus transfers must be purchased in advance, they cannot be bought on site.

Our car parks are designated with colours which will be used on road signs around Bishop Auckland to help you reach your destination by the most efficient route. The colours used are RED, GREEN and YELLOW. BLUE is used for Blue Badge parking only.

Car Park C - Green

Colliery Fields Car Park

Toronto,
Bishop Auckland,
DL14 7SB

Located just off the A689, this car park is the closest to our site and an excellent option if you are arriving from the west, east or the north via the A689 and want to beat the crowds.

From this car park, you can choose to buy a shuttle bus pass, or walk 15 to 20 minutes down a countryside path to reach the ticket and security check on the Kynren site. After the first sloped 100 yards, the rest of the path is a gently sloping gradient, but bear in mind the return walk back is up hill!

A shuttle bus transfer service runs between Colliery Fields and our site (£2 return per passenger); we recommend you book a shuttle bus transfer if you would prefer not to walk in either direction.

Please be aware that bus transfers must be purchased in advance, they cannot be bought on site.

The nearest toilet facilities are on the Kynren site.
A section of this car park is labelled Car Park D, and it is specially dedicated for our low mobility visitors.

Access to the Kynren site is via our shuttle bus transfer service (£2 return per passenger) from the Bishop Auckland bus terminal, which is a 2-3 minute walk from the car park.

If you miss the last shuttle bus to our site, or would prefer to walk, it is around a 20/25-minute walk to reach the ticket and security check on the Kynren site.
