The ICA's main entrance is on The Mall which located near St James's park and is also a ceremonial route. For this reason parking is not permitted on The Mall. However, visitors can be dropped off and collected from outside the main entrance. Please note when driving that due to traffic restrictions that may be in force from time to time, it is advisable to use Admiralty Arch to enter and exit the Mall.
There are parking meters in Waterloo Place and Carlton House Terrace, at the back of the ICA. There are also several blue badge parking spaces in Waterloo Place. Please note that a journey from any of these would mean using the Duke of York Steps (30 steps with a handrail), or reaching the ICA via Pall Mall and Trafalgar Square.
There are car parks in Whitcombe Street and Spring Gardens, both off Trafalgar Square. There is one blue badge parking space on Spring Gardens. These locations are a short distance away from our main entrance on the Mall. This route is step-free.
