Information about parking in Croydon

Croydon, nine miles south of Charing Cross, is a large town in its own right, while still being part of Greater London. It had for some time, during the early days of civil aviation, the main airport in the southeast, before the advent of Heathrow and Gatwick. It is its own London Borough and is the only town in London with its own light rail system (Tramlink). The question of where to park in Croydon can sometimes be problematic.

  • Public transport

    Croydon is at the centre of a major transport corridor from the south coast to central London, and has many excellent road and rail connections, to major south coast towns such as Brighton and into the centre of London. Buses also provide links throughout London (though it may be necessary to change buses), Essex and Sussex. Tramlink has been renamed London Trams and provides a light rail connection in and around Croydon.

  • Disabled parking

    Blue Badge holders park free in disabled parking bays.

  • Parking restrictions & event days

    Three roads in Croydon are on Red Routes, where it is not permitted to stop, much less park. But it isn’t as simple as that; see On-Street Parking for more details. The roads in question are:






  • Overnight, weekends & bank holidays

    Parking charges are suspended on Easter Sunday, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.

  • Drop-off and pick-up

    Except where loading restrictions exist, drivers can stop to pick up and set down passengers anywhere on a single yellow line, but may not wait if the passenger to be picked up is not yet there.

    Crystal Palace Football Club is here. Coombe Wood is the most attractive place for a walk, and so is Wandle Park.
