Description

Join the Napoleonic Association at their biggest event of the year!

Huge living history at the Riverside Park Huntingdon all weekend and a battle Saturday and Sunday afternoon at Hinchingbrooke Park.

There is very limited parking at Hinchingbrooke Country Park, parking will only be available for disabled badge holders and those reenactors who need it (Canons and Horseboxes for the cavalry).

Free parking is available at Hinchbingbrooke School (in the car parks in front of the house), for this weekend only ignore the signs stating parking is with permission only. There is also parking inside the school for 50p a vehicle.

Please do not park in the Bus bays or on the road to the other car parks within the school as these have to be left free for emergency vehicles and you will get a ticket if you do park there!

There are several buses that go to Hinchingbrooke Hospital, which is opposite the park: https://bustimes.org/search?q=hinchingbrooke+hospital
