We have a small number of disabled parking spaces for Blue and Orange Badge holders. Please book in advance, as spaces are limited. Call us on 020 7814 5552 to book.
The disabled parking spaces are located underneath the Museum of London building and are accessible via London Wall. Follow the sign that says '140 London Wall/Museum of London Goods Inwards’ to the left.
To access the spaces, keep going straight underneath the building (ignoring the NCP car park on your left), until you see two large statues.
Here you will see the parking spaces. If booked, you will find your registration number and/or name on the allocated space where you can leave your vehicle.
To access the museum from the car park, take the lift located between the two large statues to the museum galleries or foyer. You can call the lift by pressing the button on your right.
