Parking and Drop off Point

Our East Wing Repair and Maintenance project is underway. During this time the Hayward Gallery Car Park is closing for two years from September 2015 while major work takes place to refurbish Hayward Gallery and Queen Elizabeth Hall.

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. Free parking in the National Theatre car park is available to Blue Badge holders visiting Southbank Centre. There are a limited number of blue badge parking spaces currently still available in the Hayward carpark.

Blue Badge holders and those with access requirements can be dropped off on the Queen Elizabeth Hall slip road off Belvedere Road (the road between Royal Festival Hall and Hayward Gallery).

When attending a performance or visiting Southbank Centre, Blue Badge holders can park anywhere in the National Theatre car park. There are spaces near the lifts reserved for use by disabled people. There is a ramped entrance with semi-automatic doors to the basement foyer and lifts.

For free parking, Blue Badge holders should take their badge and car park ticket to the Royal Festival Hall Ticket Desk on Level 2 for validation, prior to leaving.
