Parking made easy
Information about parking near The Kia Oval
The Oval is quite straightforward to reach by car, located next to the junctions between the A3 and the A202 but with its Central London location, driving to here can be made difficult with high congestion being a common occurrence.
It is not recommended to arrive by car to the Oval as a lack of off-street car parks nearby and often quite strict on-street parking restrictions make this a venue worth travelling to by public transport for at least part of your journey.
JustPark provides information on plenty of parking options near The Oval, many of which are reservable – including spaces on-street and off-street, from driveways to car parks.
The Oval is located in the London Borough of Lambeth, in which there are 16 Controlled Parking Zones. The Oval is within the Kennington zone K, where restrictions apply from 8.30am-6.30pm, Monday-Friday.
There are various types of on-street bays and spaces in Lambeth, ranging from pay-and-display to resident permit, but there are also special bays that you must have a specific permit for – like Doctor’s bays, for example. Restrictions, timings and charges for each bay can vary – so it is important that you carefully read signposts on location. Also be aware that pay-and-display bays in Kennington and any further north near to Vauxhall are amongst the most expensive in all of London.

On-site parking at The Oval is only available to Blue Badge holders. This parking is quite limited on event days so it is recommended that you contact the ground of Surrey Cricket Club to pre-book a space.
Blue Badge holders may also park in any pay-and-display or resident permit bay near to the ground, for an unlimited time – but just be aware that some side roads with such spaces may be closed specifically for events.

The Oval is in the Kennington Controlled Parking Zone of the London Borough of Lambeth. Parking can be very difficult in this zone on any day, due to on-street parking being largely limited to pay-and-display or resident permit holder spaces. However, on major event days at the cricket ground, some road closures will prevent access in and around the stadium – so it is crucial that you are aware of special restrictions on such days before you arrive by car.
On the JustPark map, we’ll only show you spaces which you’re allowed to park in (i.e. are not restricted) at the times you search for.
Parking restrictions generally do not apply on weekends or Bank Holidays throughout Lambeth. However, on match days and in some bays on any day, they may still apply – so always read signposts on location outlining any special restrictions.

The Oval is a historic cricket stadium in Kennington just south of the River Thames. It is now the home of Surrey County Cricket Club, but has played host to major international cricket and even football matches in its very long history. This iconic ground sits on the former Kennington Common, which was the larger extent of what is now the beautiful Kennington Park just across the road. You’ll be sure to enjoy your day around here.
