Visitor parking

We recently introduced emissions based parking. The amount you pay to park will vary, when paying by mobile, depending on where you park and the emissions of the vehicle. When paying to park using one of our pay and display machines the maximum charge will apply regardless of the emissions of your vehicle. So, for the best rate pay to park using your mobile or use PayPoint to make payment by cash.

A 1 hour minimum tariff applies to all Hackney parking sessions (regardless of payment method), including extensions.
