Can I park at Farleigh and then visit Broomfield hospital
Unfortunately not as the car park is purely for Farleigh staff, volunteers, visitors and patients. You are able to park here if you are visiting Farleigh or the café but will need to relocate your car if you are then going on to the hospital
