Information about parking near Hampton Court Palace

Around Hampton Court Palace, there are some on-street parking spaces available on both sides of the River Thames with a good choice of affordable off-street car parks nearby.
JustPark provides information on a multitude of parking options nearby, many of which are reservable – including spaces on-street and off-street, from driveways to car parks.
There are a limited number of on-street spaces available to visiting drivers near to Hampton Court Palace. The palace straddles the border between the London borough of Richmond and the county of Surrey so there are slightly differing parking restrictions either side of the River Thames. However, the majority of nearby streets are very busy connecting roads and bus routes that prohibit parking much of the time.
There are some pay-and-display bays available on Hampton Court Road on the Richmond side with parking restrictions operational from 8.30am-6.30pm Monday-Sunday. Alternatively, there are some shared use bays across the river in East Molesey, Surrey which operate from 8am-6pm Monday-Friday but enforce a maximum stay which will be indicated on signposts at each location.

The Tudor palace of Hampton Court sits on a bend in the Thames overlooking the three-way boundary of southerly Surrey and the London boroughs of Richmond and Kingston. This old residence of King Henry VIII is a magnificent site with its walls and gardens covering a great expanse for you to explore. Kingston-upon-Thames can be found via an hour-long, incredibly beautiful walk downstream along the Thames – but that’s only if the site of Hampton Court Palace itself isn’t enough for you.
