Car park, Coniston

As with most other car parks in towns and villages you'll need to bring planty of pound coins to park next to the tourist information centre car park. This one isn't the biggest car park either and it does fill up rather quickly. If you don't mind a short walk however, there is a second option at Coniston Sports Club (the top red arrow)
