Parking

Double yellow lines
Parking around the RCM is metered and charged at rates reflecting its central London location.

In addition to some on-street parking, spaces in the Imperial College car park (main entrance on Exhibition Road; occasional entrance on Prince Consort Road) are normally available – current hourly rates are published on the Imperial College website.

Please note that the Imperial College car park is a public car park at weekends and that the Junior Department does not have exclusive use – if the car park authorities need to restrict access or close the car park at any time, this is outside our control.

The document below details further places to park in the local area.

Parents wishing to drop off/pick up students from outside the RCM should be aware that there is a Westminster City Council CCTV parking camera in place opposite (and pointing at) the RCM – according to direct communication from WCC, motorists are permitted to stop on the double yellow lines to load and unload from private vehicles for a maximum of 20 minutes. Please note, this does not apply in the area directly in front of the RCM as this has zigzag lines due to its proximity to apedestrian crossing.
