This is the place to find the answer to all those questions that aren’t answered elsewhere on this web site. If the answer that you are looking for isn’t here – email us and we’ll try to sort it out.
Is there Car and Disabled parking at Carnforth Station?
Yes – At the front of the Station is a pay and display car park, owned and managed by Network Rail. The Heritage Centre is not part of this company and receives no revenue from car parking receipts. There are a number of disabled parking spaces available for people displaying a blue badge. It would be helpful if Coach Parties pre-book through the Heritage Centre Manager on 01524 735165.
What is the entrance fee for the Heritage Centre?
Entrance to Carnforth Station Heritage Centre is FREE. The Station is administered by the Carnforth Station and Railway Trust Company Ltd, Registered Charity 1061179. The running costs incurred are met by rent from the commercial businesses on the Station; income from room hire; profits from the “Friends Shop” manned by volunteers, and DONATIONS. We would like every single visitor to leave a £50.00 donation – but we are realists ! We hope that you enjoy your visit and leave a little culturally richer. While you are here take the opportunity to browse in the shops, and then enjoy a cup of coffee in the pleasant atmosphere of the Refreshment Room.
Is there disabled access to the Heritage Centre?
The Heritage Centre is all on one level and is totally wheelchair accessible.
