Parking made easy
Information about parking in Wimbledon
On-street parking is particularly difficult in Wimbledon with the majority of streets within Controlled Parking Zones and many spaces reserved solely for resident permit holders. Fortunately, there are a good selection of off-street car parks to choose from throughout the area.
JustPark provides information on a multitude of parking options across Wimbledon – including spaces on-street, off-street and those that are reservable, from driveways to car parks.
Most of Wimbledon is divided into Controlled Parking Zones by Merton Council to ensure that residents are prioritised when it comes to finding a parking space outside their homes. As a result, most on-street parking spaces are either pay-and-display or reserved for resident permit holders. Time of operation can vary from street to street – in the town centre, restrictions typically apply from 8.30am-6.30pm (Monday-Saturday), but do make sure to check signposts on location for specific restrictions.
You can use the JustPark parking map to find information on available on-street parking spaces across the Wimbledon area.

There are a number of off-street car parks in Wimbledon, both council and commercially operated. The largest of these is the Centre Court Shopping Centre car park (Queens Road, Wimbledon, SW19 8YA) in the town centre. This location is by far the largest in terms of spaces and offers a very reasonable hourly rate in comparison to others nearby. The car park is open until midnight, Monday-Sunday – opening at 6am Monday-Friday, 8am on Saturday, and 10am on Sundays.
An alternative option very nearby to the south of Wimbledon station is The Bridge car park (Hartfield Road, London, SW19 3RU) which operates from 6am-midnight, Monday-Saturday, and 10am-midnight on Sundays. This car park is slightly more expensive but still offers convenient access to the town centre and to the main station.
JustPark offers a wide selection of reservable off-street spaces in Wimbledon – in both council and commercially-run car parks, as well as at hotels, offices and on private driveways. You can browse these options and book a guaranteed space via our website or app.

Wimbledon is served by a number of train and tube stations providing National Rail and London Underground services. The principal railway station is Wimbledon station, forming part of the District Line on the London Underground whilst also providing Thameslink, Tramlink and National Rail services.
Blue Badge holders can park for free in any on-street disabled, pay-and-display or permit holder bay, free of charge and for an unlimited amount of time.
Much like the rest of the UK, disabled drivers displaying their Blue Badge may also park on single or double yellow lines for up to 3 hours if necessary and as long as they are not in obstruction of buses or violating any loading bans at a chosen setting spot.

Wimbledon is divided into several Controlled Parking Zones much like the rest of the whole London Borough of Merton. The restrictions are particularly stringent in the town centre and near to the station with the majority of spaces reserved for resident permit holders. The pay-and-display spaces that are available usually also enforce a maximum stay so it is paramount you are aware of the specific restrictions of your chosen space.
The Wimbledon Championships every year in the summer months seemingly take over this small South West London suburban town. Merton Council implement special parking restrictions during the months of the Championships, again to ensure that residents are not affected by the influx of visitors to the area. These restrictions largely mean that all loading, waiting and stopping on nearby streets to the All England Lawn Tennis Club is prohibited. Further details on the specifics of these restrictions, including a map on the streets in questions can be found on the The London Borough of Merton council website.
On the JustPark map, we’ll only show you spaces which you’re allowed to park in and are not restricted at the times you search for.
The majority of on-street parking restrictions do not apply on weekends or on Bank holidays but in the town centre near to Wimbledon station, many restrictions will still be enforced so it is essential you check local signage when or if you park.
Overnight parking is actually free in some of the Merton Council off-street car parks with charges often only applying until a certain time in the evening and from a time in the morning.

Wimbledon is most famous for being the home of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, held annually at the All England Lawn Tennis Club. The event brings thousands to SW19 in the summer months each year but there’s so much more to do. The tennis club is adjoined to the lovely Wimbledon Park which has a large scenic lake, but to the west of this lies the much larger Wimbledon Common – which is a fantastic place to unwind with its rolling hills and towering trees.
