Heaton Park

Driving šŸš—

Lightopia is expected to be a popular destination for families - especially at weekends!

There are a number of official car parks on site that are available for customers. There can be bought in advance or on the day unless sold out in advance. If you are driving it is highly recommended that you purchase your car parking ticket in advance to avoid disappointment.

When you purchase your car parking ticket, you will be notified of which car park and which space to use at a later date closer to the time of the event. It is very important that you only go to your designated space.
