Park Mark® award
Tudor Rose holds the Park Mark® accreditation for our site at Hookwood Park (only 3 minutes away from Gatwick Airport).
We are the closest off-airport parking operator to Gatwick North and South Terminal. Type RH6 0HQ in Google Earth.
The Park Mark® accreditation is awarded to parking facilities that have met the requirements of a risk assessment conducted by the Police.

For customers, using a Park Mark® Safer Parking facility means that the area has been vetted by the Police and has measures in place to create a safe environment.
By having The Park Mark® accreditation ensures that:
