Accessible car parking

Parking spaces for disabled visitors to Tate Modern

There are five parking spaces for disabled visitors to Tate Modern, located on Park Street at the eastern end of the building. These spaces must be booked ahead:

Once you have parked, please come in to the staff entrance for a short escorted route into the galleries via the Turbine Hall.

Please note: Park Street is no longer a through route from Holland Street. Visitors to the accessible car park at the Park Street entrance to the building need to approach from the eastern end of the building. This temporary arrangement until mid June 1016, when a new accessible car park with ten spaces for disabled visitors will open on the South entrance of Tate Modern.

A drop off / pick up point is situated on Holland Street, near the Main entrance.
