Parking made easy
Information about parking in Epping
Epping is located just outside of the M25 boundary, adjacent to the M11 to Cambridge. As a result, it can quickly and easily be reached from either of these motorways.
On-street parking spaces are limited but largely unrestricted. There are also a good choice of off-street car parks, serving both the town centre and Epping station.
As well as its close proximity to the M11, Epping station serves as the Northeastern terminus of the London Underground Central Line and is thus a perfect ‘park and tube’ destination. The journey time from Epping to Central London by tube is around 45 minutes.
JustPark provides information on parking options throughout Epping – including spaces on-street, off-street and those that are reservable, from driveways to car parks.
Most on-street parking restrictions apply only in the immediate vicinity to Epping High Street and Epping Station – with many of the surrounding roads to these locations being single or double yellow lined, or residential areas with permit holder only spaces. However, just a short drive clear of these nearby streets and most on-street parking is free. Be aware that there are limited spaces on these residential streets and you may be a bit of a walk from your desired location.
You can use the JustPark parking map to find information on available on-street parking spaces in Epping.
Epping Forest District Council provide 3 off-street car parks in Epping, all in the town centre within walking distance of Epping High Street. The largest of these car parks is Cottis Lane car park (Cottis Lane, Essex, CM16 5EG) which operates from 7.30am-6pm, Monday-Sunday. The hourly rates here are very reasonable but be aware that there is a 5 hour maximum stay. A very attractive discounted weekend daily fare is also available.
A great option for those wishing to park up and commute into London is NCP’s Epping Station car park (Station Road, Epping, CM16 4HW). This large car park is open 24 hours a day, Monday-Sunday, and generally provides you the best off-street all-day parking option for the station and the town itself, with reasonable daily fares.

This small town in Essex is a popular place to commute into London from, but Epping has lots to offer all on its own. The town is perhaps most famous for bearing the name of the many millennia-old Epping Forest, which stretches for miles in patches straddling the borders of Greater London and Essex. Closer to home, Epping High street in the town centre is a vibrant road with great shops and restaurants all the way along.
