Fishing at Kingsbury

One of the largest and most diverse fisheries in the Midlands with a total of 12 landscaped lakes.

An Environment Agency rod licence and a day ticket entitles anglers to fish with two rods from one peg. Anglers with two EA rod licences can purchase two day tickets of the same value to fish three rods from one peg.

To access Pine, Swann, Causeway, Mill, Willows and Bodymoor Heath Water anglers should use the main entrance barrier. There is a parking fee of £4.50 per car and the correct change is required for the machine.

Anglers fishing Heron, Kingfisher, Gibsons, and Cliff Pool South will need to exit the park after purchasing their day ticket, turn right onto Bodymoor Heath Lane which takes visitors over the M42 motorway and turn first right into the Broomey Croft entrance. They should then follow the road into the park and carry on past the Camping and Caravanning Club to the entrance barrier. There is a cheaper parking charge of £3.00 for this part of the park but anglers will still need the correct change for the machine.

Annual parking passes are available at £48.00 (there is a reduced price for disabled badge holders) available from the Information Centre or online.

Disabled angling

Gibsons, Cliff Pool South, Causeway, Mill & Pine Pools all have purpose built easily accessible pegs for disabled or less able anglers to use. You can park right next to most of these pegs.

Gibsons pool pegs are accessible via a gate with a RADAR key lock. Please lock the gate behind you & carefully drive around to the designated parking area.

Fishing day ticket prices

Warwickshire Country Parks are going cashless. You will now need to visit the nearest pay and display machine located in the staff/disabled car parks. Select the correct tariff for the lake you wish to fish and pay a single fee by card. Keep the fishing ticket with you for the rangers to check bankside.

You do not need to purchase a separate car parking ticket.

Ticket Price
Concession £6.50
Adult £7.50
Pine Pool (no conc.) £9.50
