Canary Wharf Parking
Information about parking in Canary Wharf
Canary Wharf is a unique area in London located on the Isle of Dogs. What used to be a derelict dockland is now home to 97 acres of office and retail space with a booming financial centre.
While you’re in the area, check out the Museum of London Docklands, which tells the story of the local area and has a hands-on exhibition section dedicated to Mud Larking! If it’s shopping you’re after, head to Canary Wharf Shopping Centre, with high-end fashion labels and high street names. For an oasis of calm, The Crossrail Place Roof Garden is a great way to spend an afternoon, where the plants are arranged according to the hemisphere in a beautiful greenhouse designed by architects Foster + Partners.
Canary Wharf has a certain buzz, set right on the river and with an abundance of history, making it an exciting place to explore both during the working week and on the weekend. You’ll be spoilt for choice for dining options, and places to shop and drink.
Most of the on-street parking in Canary Wharf is restricted, making it particularly difficult for city centre commuters and visitors to find reasonably priced parking to suit their needs. This often makes it unaffordable for those who have to drive to and from the city every day.

Easy to find, secure space. Host very accommodating, friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.Kathryn
easy to find, great locationPeter
Cannot fault. There were plenty of parking spaces. The car park was secure, the location was very close to the Limehouse DLR and just 6 mins drive from Tower Hill. Will certainly park here again.Tariq
No complaints… took an available space at the far end of the parking lot safely under the big tree close to the concrete wall. Not much space to manoeuvre but manage to squeeze in.. otherwise it’s decent place to park, seems safe and hassle free..Van
Very easy to book. Little fiddly to find the place but once found very straight forward. No fuss. Just park and exit. Best to do it online.Sandra
Easy to find , good size space in a secure underground car parkMarty
It was a bit tricky knowing which car park we had booked, it was only when we looked back at the email that we saw a photo. Not sure if there was anyone manning the Car park, like it says, as we never saw one. And we still had to ring the number to make sure we had the right car park. It was handy though as our hotel was just over the road, and only a short walk to get on the underground. When leaving we again had to ring the help number as the car park wouldn’t let us out. But all in all, it was pretty straight forward. I would use again, and I would recommend to other peopleNicola
