Dorney Lake is a privately-owned site and access to members of the public is welcome.

Enjoy a relaxing walk in the beautiful park and arboretum situated within the 400 acre site, read the story boards explaining all the flora and fauna and discover the sculptures dotted through the parkland.

The paths around the Lake are also available for public use and we kindly request that everyone adheres to the basic guidelines of safety and consideration which are positioned around the venue. Please read the site rules below for more information.


Public access may be restricted or not permitted on certain event days, please check the event calendar or our Social Media before your visit.

Our gate opening times vary seasonally but are generally open during daylight hours only.

Car Parking

Pay and display machines are sited in the designated car parks and no cars are permitted to park outside these areas without authorisation. Public parking at the privately owned Dorney Lake site will be subject to a charging tariff of £2.50 per day for each visitor car

Payments can only be made by automated payment methods (there is no facility for making cash payments).

I love using Dorney Lake, our delegates are always delighted with the location, facilities and food.
