Where can I park?
Alternatively you can park off-street for free in a Q-Park dedicated motorcycle bay car park (excluding Soho).
Solo motorcycle bays
Across Westminster there are approx 6150 spaces for motorcycles on street. Some of these spaces also have security devices for you to secure your motorcycle to.
Non Motorcycle Bays
If you are unable to find a space in a dedicated motorcycle bay either on- or off-street, you may park your motorcycle in Pay and Display, Shared Use and Pay by Phone bays which are provided for standard sized vehicles. The charge to park in these bays will be indicated on Pay & Display machines or on signs within the bay. Prices range from £1.10 per hour to £4.40 per hour in Westminster. Visit our Zones and Prices section for detailed pricing information.
Failure to pay the appropriate charges for parking in these bays may result in you being issued with a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN). If you park in other bays, such as residents' parking bays, and you do not have a valid residents' permit, you may also receive a PCN.
Holder of a residents' permit for a motorcycle?
Holders of a resident's permit for a motorcycle are able to park their bike in a residents' bay in the zone of the permit and in any motorcycle bay borough-wide without further charge. From April 2010, resident's permits for motorcycles have been 'virtual', electronic permits adminsitered through the City Council's Pay by Phone scheme, dispensing with the need for a permit holder to display a physical, paper permit.
