We’re hosting a Have a Grow Day

Houghton Hall Park

Address: Houghton Hall Park
Park Road North

As part of a Parks for People project with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery, Houghton Hall Park in Houghton Regis has undergone large scale landscape restoration. Managed jointly by Central Bedfordshire Council and Houghton Regis Town Council, the park is a hugely valuable asset for the local community and features a brand new visitor centre as well as a restored kitchen garden and formal gardens. These provide important volunteering and engagement opportunities, and the produce grown in the kitchen garden is utilised between the cafe in the visitor centre and use by the community.

Facilities: Volunteering, Picnic area, Play area
Accessible? Yes
Has livestock?

If you are using a Sat Nav, we strongly recommend searching for Park Road North rather than using the postcode (LU5 5FU). From here you can follow the brown tourism road signs to Houghton Hall Park - there is a purple welcome sign on Park Road North outside the entrance to the visitor centre car park.

Visiting on foot? Great! We always encourage visitors to walk to the park if possible, as this is a fantastic way to act sustainably while making sure not to miss out on any of what the park has to offer.

Visiting by public transport? We recommend using Traveline to plan your journey in advance from your starting location and navigating to Park Road North, Houghton Regis.

Visiting by car? There are 39 car parking spaces adjacent to the visitor centre – these are free to use at the weekend. Access is via a 2.1m height barrier, restricting vehicular access in excess of this height.

Toilets: No
