Very few of these on-street parking areas have more than half a dozen spaces, except for St George Street (north-east side), which has ten. Several on-street parking areas can be found in the roads around Hanover Square.
Various off-street car parks are dotted around Oxford Street, including Q-Park garages in Poland Street (Soho), Cavendish Square and Queen Anne Mews. The closest is Poland St, which is within 10 minutes’ walk. The convenience is reflected in a marginally more expensive fee (£24.00 for 3 hours), but the prices are reasonable for the area.
NCP also have a presence around Oxford Street. Their locations include Berners Street and Brewer Street. Attractive off-street prices are available farther out at car parks like CitiPark Clipstone Street (£15.00 for 3 hours). The walk from there is about 30 minutes to Oxford Street.
Oxford Street is accessible through numerous tube stations and lines. For instance, the Central Line stops at Bond Street, Marble Arch, Oxford Circus and Tottenham Court Road. The Victoria Line also stops at Oxford Circus. Both of these lines run a 24-hour service on Fridays and Saturdays.

A limited number of on-street disabled spaces near Oxford Street are free for two hours. These are all within 5-6 minutes’ walk of the destination, though there is only one spot at each, including Archer Street, Rupert Street, Broadwick Street and Marshall Street. Naturally, most of the privately owned off-street car parks also have disabled parking, though not without charge.
Outside of the on-street parking spaces mentioned, many streets in London use Controlled Parking Zones (CPZ) to ensure spaces for residents. Non-residents are not permitted to park in these spaces during peak hours (typically 8.30 am to 6.30 pm weekdays and 8.30 am to 1.30 pm on Saturdays).
With the exception of Christmas Eve, all bank holidays are treated like Sundays in the City of Westminster, which Oxford Street falls within. That means visitors can park in residential areas for free if they can find a space.
Oxford Street is often congested and keep-clear areas are surveyed by traffic enforcement cameras, so you may find it less stressful to drop passengers off and pick them up in one of the many side roads.
Aside from shopping at Selfridges, John Lewis, House of Fraser, HMV or the country’s largest Marks and Spencer, there are other things to do and see around Oxford Street. At the far west of it on the corner of Hyde Park is Marble Arch. Or, at nearby Manchester Square, you can see the wonderful Wallace Collection (art collection) in Hertford House.
