Travel to Southbank Centre
Please note that the Hayward Gallery Car Park is closed from Tuesday 5 May – Sunday 17 May while major work takes place to install our summer exhibition. The only parking available will be at the Hungerford Bridge Car Park, and consequently space will be very limited.
We encourage travel by public transport during this period. Alternative parking is available nearby at the National Theatre Car Park and Coin Street underground car park, subject to charges.
Parking for Blue Badge holders
From Tuesday 5 May – Sunday 17 May the National Theatre have kindly agreed to offer free parking to Southbank Centre visitors who have a Blue Badge. Visitors should take their badge and car park ticket to the Southbank Centre Ticket Offices at Royal Festival Hall (10am – 11pm) or at Queen Elizabeth Hall (evenings only) for validation prior to leaving.
The National Theatre Car Park can be accessed from Upper Ground, 7am – 1am.
An accessible toilet is situated off the Hayward Gallery Foyer, as well as a baby-change facility.
