Parking in Wandsworth

Pay and display charges


Machines either accept payment by:

  • coin (20p, 50p, £1 and £2 coins), or
  • credit/debit card (Chip & Pin or contactless card)

There is a minimum charge of 20p, which will purchase a very short period of time. Prices per hour will vary by street. You can check before you travel.

Payment machines

You should always check the pay and display machine relevant to where your vehicle is parked for current information on the pay and display charges that apply. Arrows on the parking bay signs will direct you to the machine you should use. The machines do not give change.

Pay by phone

There is a pay-by-phone system available to pay and display visitors throughout the borough. Find out more about pay by phone (Parkmobile).  

Battersea Park

Separate charges apply to the car parks within Battersea Park. Please see the Battersea Park CPZ map for details of the pay and display parking charges that apply there.


There are three main pay and display tariffs which apply in various locations throughout controlled parking zones (CPZs) in Wandsworth.

Standard tariff 

This tariff applies in the majority of shared use (permit holder/pay and display) parking bays in CPZs throughout the borough, which offer a maximum stay of 4 hours or more.   

High tariff

This tariff applies to shared use and pay and display only bays near town centres, where a shorter maximum stay (usually one or two hours) is available. 

Low tariff

This tariff applies to some shared use (permit holder/pay and display) and pay and display only parking bays that were identified as being under-used. These bays often allow an all-day stay.
