Parking information

Please be aware parking in the Zoo’s main car park will be significantly reduced from 17 September 2017 due to ongoing third party works. We would advise travelling to the Zoo via public transport, and you can 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 main road. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you in advance for your patience.

There will be no drop off or parking facilities for coaches from 27 September to 22 October 2017. Please see more information on coach parking below.

Parking for Zoo visitors is available in the Zoo's Gloucester Slips Car Park and is payable on the day.

The Zoo's Main Gate is situated on the Outer Circle of Regent's Park NW1, which is outside of the congestion charge zone.

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.


Coach parking

Due to works being undertaken by Thames Water and HS2, we regret to inform you that the car park will be reduced in size for a considerable time and therefore from 1 January 2018 we will no longer be able to offer parking for coaches. We will be creating new 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.
