Parking made easy
Information about parking in Canary Wharf
Driving to Canary Wharf is becoming easier by the day, with this financial district on London Docklands being an integral part of the city. The nearby A13 connects Canary Wharf directly to the M25, and the Blackwall and Rotherhithe tunnels make it simple to reach from South of the River.
On-street parking in Canary Wharf itself is largely impossible. The nearest place that you can park on-street is further south on the Isle of Dogs, but charges here are quite high. Off-street parking is more readily available – but with high prices here too, it’s worth considering utilising the good public transport that serves Canary Wharf.
JustPark provides information on a large number of parking options across Canary Wharf – including spaces on-street, off-street and those that are reservable.
Canary Wharf is made up of largely pedestrianised, narrow, busy streets and parking on them is very difficult – with spaces being mostly permit-restricted at all times. Parking is permitted on some streets further south on the Isle of Dogs, such as on Millharbour, but spaces are very limited and quite expensive. It is recommended to use the off-street parking available, or park up and commute in from further afield via public transport.

Canary Wharf is one of the busiest areas in London and parking is difficult at all times. Most streets are permit-restricted for residents and business owners or are completely pedestrianised, so it can be very tricky to park on-street throughout Canary Wharf.
On the JustPark map, we’ll only show you spaces which are not restricted at the times that you search for.
On weekends and Bank Holidays, all 4 of the public underground car parks offer free parking for the first 3 hours if you spend more than £10 in the shopping centre. You must validate your parking ticket at point of purchase in order to take advantage of this discount.
Overnight parking is available in all of these on-site car parks, and rates are reasonable between the hours of 6pm and 7am.

On the northern edge of the Isle of Dogs, Canary Wharf is a recent development creating one of London’s busiest financial districts. It is home to huge skyscrapers and some of the largest banks in the world have their headquarters here.
The area itself has been transformed into an impressive ‘concrete jungle’, on the dockland landscape overlooking the bends of the Thames, which certainly boasts its own kind of beauty and is worth experiencing. With fabulous shopping, bars and restaurants, Canary Wharf is a vibrant place to work and to visit.
