Parking made easy
Information about parking in Hammersmith
Driving to Hammersmith couldn’t be easier, as the major A4 road runs right through the area connecting the M4 with Central London.
Hammersmith is a very densely populated and busy area of London, and this has a number of effects on parking in the area. On-street spaces can be limited, whilst off-street car parks often charge a very high premium as the area asserts itself as an upmarket London location. Parking elsewhere and arriving via the good public transport links is always worth considering.
JustPark provides information on parking options across Hammersmith – covering both on-street and off-street spaces, with many of them reservable, from driveways to car parks.
Parking on-street can be quite challenging in Hammersmith as it is a very busy and congested area of West London. As a result, there are a series of Controlled Parking Zones of which the majority of Hammersmith is within the central Zone A. This zone enforces a maximum stay of between 2 and 4 hours (which varies depending on where you park) and operates from 8.30am-6.30pm, Monday-Saturday. Hourly parking charges here are relatively affordable in comparison to some other areas of London.
You can use the JustPark parking map to find information on available on-street parking spaces in Hammersmith.

There are a lack of council-operated off-street car parks near to Hammersmith, but there are several privately-run locations. However, unfortunately, most of these privately-run car parks are increasingly charging a very high rate.
Kings Mall shopping centre car park (Glenthorne Road, Hammersmith, W6 0LJ) is very well located off-street car park in the centre of Hammersmith. The car park is open 24 hours a day, Monday-Sunday – but the parking charges for stays any longer than 4 hours are extremely high, even for London.
Another alternative nearby is the Hammersmith Novotel car park (1 Shortlands, Hammersmith, W6 8DR) which is a marginally cheaper long term option, but it does only offer an hourly rate – so this soon adds up to a relatively high daily fare.
JustPark offers a wide selection of reservable off-street spaces in Hammersmith – in both council and commercially-run car parks, as well as at hotels, offices and on private driveways. You can browse these options and book a guaranteed space via our website or app.
