From 21 September 2015, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery closed for two years for essential repair and refurbishment.
The Hayward Gallery car park is no longer closing on 30 November. It will remain open, with minimum losses to spaces, until at least March 2016.
During this period, parking will also be available nearby at the National Theatre car park, the Doon Street car park on Belvedere Road and at the Cornwall Road multi-storey car park. These car parks are a 5-10 minute walk from the Royal Festival Hall..

Parking spaces for Southbank Centre visitors who have a blue badge will be available in the Hayward Gallery car park.
We have also secured free parking at the National Theatre car park, which is the nearest alternative to the Hayward car park. Visitors should take their badge and car park ticket to the Ticket Office at Royal Festival Hall (10am-11pm) for validation prior to leaving. The National Theatre car park can be accessed via the theatre foyer Monday - Saturday 09:30am-11:15pm, Sunday (on performance days), 12 noon - 6pm, and from Upper Ground, 7am - 1am. The entrance ramp to the car park is at the south west corner of the National Theatre, on upper ground, by Theatre Avenue (the road between the National Theatre and British Film Institute).
Coin Street Community Builders have kindly agreed to offer free parking to Southbank Centre visitors who have a Blue Badge. The car park is a 5-10 minute walk from the Royal Festival Hall. Visitors should take their badge and car park ticket to the parking attendant office situated at the entrance to the car park for validation prior to leaving.

There is a lift to street level that exits onto Cornwall Road / Upper Gournd opposite ITV Studios.
Royal Festival Hall Drop-Off Point
A drop-off point has been created for visitors who are unable to walk from the alternative car parks. The drop-off point is located off Belvedere Road outside the main entrance to the Royal Festival Hall, and is signposted so that you can find it easily. The glass lift is situated at this entrance and can take you to all floors including step-free access into the auditorium.
