FAQ: Car parking

Where can I / my parents park when moving into / out of the Hall?
Most of Tavistock Square and adjoining Gordon Square have a single yellow line (parking prohibited at specified times) and residents' parking bays. During the week, it is therefore very difficult to park near the Hall, and the best option is usually to park in the NCP car park underneath the Royal National Hotel, one block south of Connaught Hall, at a cost of about £20 for 6 hours.
Anyone can park on the single yellow lines or in the residents' parking spaces in Tavistock Square and Gordon Square:
  • after 6.30pm Mon-Fri;
  • after 1.30pm Saturday; and
  • all day Sunday.
So if you are arriving on a Sunday, as most people do, you can park on the street just outside the Hall.
