How to find us

Parliament is located in Westminster, in the centre of London. All major forms of public transport, many of which are wheelchair accessible, serve it.

Rail and Underground

Visitors travelling on the London Underground can use the District, Circle or Jubilee lines to get to Westminster station, which is fully wheelchair accessible. Victoria, Charing Cross and Waterloo mainline stations are about 20 minutes away by foot and have connecting buses.

Buses

Buses stop near Parliament Square in Victoria Street (opposite the Houses of Parliament) and further up towards Trafalgar Square, in Whitehall. All buses in London are now wheelchair accessible.

Walking

If you're travelling by foot, you can access Parliament by Westminster and Waterloo bridges. Both are wheelchair accessible, as are the Golden Jubilee pedestrian bridges (the old Hungerford Bridge), which connect the South Bank with Victoria Embankment.

Bicycles

Members of the public cannot bring bicycles into the parliamentary estate. Public bicycle racks are a short distance away outside 7 Millbank.

By car

Coming by car is not recommended as parking is expensive and severly limited, and you will often be subject to the congestion charge.There is a commercial car park near Victoria Tower, with advance booking for disabled bays. There are disabled parking spaces nearby in Great Peter Street, Smith Square, and by Methodist Central Hall on Matthew Parker Street.

There is no designated area to drop or pick someone up from Parliament. If you need to do this, motorists can stop briefly just before the entrance to Victoria Gardens, towards Millbank. However, please be aware that for security reasons the police will quickly move you on.
