Please be aware parking in the Zoo’s main car park is currently significantly reduced due to ongoing third party works, and will be further restricted 15th September to the 18th October 2019 due to the annual Frieze Art Fair.
Unfortunately we cannot guarantee any space will be available during this time and we strongly advise travelling to the Zoo via public transport. Find more information regarding nearest stations and bus routes on our Directions page.
If you’re unable to park in the Zoo’s car park, there is some on-street parking available on the Outer Circle (see below). We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Coach drop off facilities will also be suspended between 15th September to the 18th October 2019.
The Zoo's Main Gate is situated on the Outer Circle of Regent's Park NW1, which is outside of the congestion charge zone.

Car park spaces cannot be reserved or guaranteed.
Pay and display parking
Pay and display parking is also available on the Outer Circle at £2.40 per hour Monday to Saturday and £1.40 per hour on Sundays from 9am to 6.30pm each day. There is a 4 hour max stay Monday-Saturday but no maximum stay on Sundays.
Disabled badge holders and motorcycles may park free with a maximum stay of four hours.
Due to works being undertaken by Thames Water and HS2, we regret to inform you that the car park is now reduced in size and we can no longer offer parking for coaches. There are coach drop-off spaces but once groups have disembarked, parking will need to be found off site. We also have plans to make the car park as flexible as possible so we can respond quickly to fluctuating demand for cars and coaches.
Transport for London’s latest coach parking information is available here.
If your groups have specific access needs, we will do our best to accommodate coach parking in the ZSL London Zoo car park. Please contact our Supporter Services team as far in advance as possible to discuss your requirements and secure a place: email@example.com or 0344 225 1826.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
There is a disabled parking bay in front of the entrance to the Zoo, and disabled visitors can also park on the main road for up to four hours. We do also have disabled parking spaces in the main car park.
All Pay and Display parking bays in Regent's Park allow free parking to blue badge holders (for a maximum of four hours, Monday to Saturday 9am - 6pm).
