Parking Meters

Most streets in central London have parking meters, with the parking bay marked out. Some only permit you to use them for a designated amount of time, eg 2 hours; the details will be marked on the meter. In addition, they indicate the times that you need to pay to use them and when you can park free; usually after 18.30.

Car Parks

There are many car parks in London. Their locations are indicated on street signs which have a white "P" on a blue background; often there is an arrow indicating which direction you need to go to find the car park. There are often car parks close to or are part of British Rail train stations.

In addition, a company called National Car Parks (NCP) operates very many car parks in London. Often the blue parking sign will lead you to an NCP, alternatively, look out for a yellow sign with black NCP lettering to find one. NCP will send to you a free copy of their booklet which lists all their car parks. You can contact them on:-
