Information about parking in Shoreditch
Shoreditch has been called by that name, or something like it, for at least 1000 years and possibly a lot longer. When Shakespeare’s first plays, (including Hamlet), were performed there, it was still outside London, but the growth of the capital has been such that Shoreditch is now part of the inner city. It continued as an entertainment centre into the Victorian age and beyond, but was devastated by German bombing in WWII. More recently it has been extensively gentrified and is home to several high tech and entertainment companies. The number of visitors and the parking regulations in force lend importance to the question; where to park in Shoreditch?

This does not confer a right to wait for a passenger, disabled or not.
