Planning Your Visit

How to get to the Welcombe Hills and Clopton Park

There is very limited car parking facilities at the Welcombe Hills and Clopton Park so we would encourage all visitors to use the park and ride facilities located off the A46. Bus services run every 10 minutes into the town centre.

Be Prepared

The Welcombe Hills is a nature reserve and can often be wet and muddy so please come dressed for the outdoors. Sturdy footwear is essential. 

You can find more information about the nature reserve on our Welcombe HIlls reserve page
