Accessibility FAQs

Free parking is available for blue badge holders in Snowdonia National Park Authority car parks. Information on which car parks have disabled parking bays is on the Parking page.

Parking in Snowdonia

Disabled Parking at Pen y Pass:

There is no change to the disabled space at Pen y Pass car park. The space remains there and does not need to be pre-booked or paid for. However it also remains on a first-come, first-served basis as it has always been, and therefore you may find that the space is already full when you arrive. This is even more likely to be the case in the busy summer months.

We have staff on the ground 24 hours a day who are more than happy to assist if you arrive and the space is already taken.

Snowdonia National Park Authority offers accessible toilets in many locations.

Information about accessible toilets is available on the Toilets and Facilites page.
