There is a small charge at the two main entrances (the National Trust have staff on duty) but as others have said, it's part of the coastal path and there are other access points where you can enter for free

Hi, hope I'm not too late with the answer. Parking is free and from what I gather you can pretty much enter the site at any time. The visitor's center may just be closed. It's a bit of a trek to get to the temple... More
