Some additional information about parking in tower hill, to cater to all your parking needs
Perhaps the most striking feature of roads around Tower Hill is the preponderance of double red lines indicating that roads are part of a London Red Route. It is not permitted to stop on a Red Route, let alone park, even for a moment, except in the case of a licensed taxi setting down a blue badge holder. There are pay-and-display parking spaces scattered around the City of London, but very few indeed in or around Tower Hill.
Even in off-street car parks, parking spaces are limited around Tower Hill:
Tower Hill Underground Station is on the District and Circle Lines; changing at Monument for Bank gives access to the Central Line through the centre of London. There is access to the Docklands Light Railway at Tower Gateway, and Fenchurch Street mainline station is nearby.
Aldgate Bus Station is a short walk away.
Although there are a small number of disabled parking spaces close* to Tower Hill, Blue Badge holders receive no other concessions. They have to pay to use the disabled parking spaces and are not allowed to park on yellow lines.
Vehicles registered by the DVLA as “Disabled Tax-Exempt” are excused the congestion charge for driving in London and also can drive through the Dartford Tunnel without paying.
Parking restrictions are generally draconian in the Tower Hill area because of the Red Route regulations, the volume of traffic and the shortage of parking spaces.
Tower Hill Car and Coach Park are reduced to £3 per visit on Sundays and bank holidays – but get there early, or you may not find a parking space.
Drivers may stop to set down and pick up passengers only in side streets that do not have double red lines, and this applies to disabled passengers as to any others. Waiting for passengers who have not yet arrived is not permitted.
The most obvious nearby attractions are the Tower of London and the Thames, but this is the City of London, and its history is all around. There are walking tours on subjects as far removed from each other as Jack the Ripper and the Plague Years.
