Driving in London can give you the freedom to explore the capital at your leisure.

However, if you're planning to drive while in London, make sure to take into account a few helpful tips to travel in a more sustainable and knowledgeable way.

Park and Ride

Using public transport for part of your journey is a cost-effective way to travel that helps ease congestion, reduces emissions, and can be easier than finding a parking space at peak times near the campus. Use platforms like Park and Ride London to find the nearest and best places to park on your way to our campus.

Charges for driving in London

The Congestion Charge is a £15 daily charge if you drive within the Congestion Charge zone 07:00-22:00, every day, except Christmas Day (25 December).

The central London Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) applies in the same area as the Congestion Charge zone. This operates 24 hours a day, every day of the year, except for Christmas Day. Most vehicles need to meet certain emissions standards or drivers will be required to pay a daily charge.

The Low Emission Zone (LEZ) covers most of Greater London: the most polluting diesel vehicles must meet certain emissions standards or pay to drive there, including coaches, minibuses, and lorries. Cars and motorcycles are not affected by the LEZ.
