Satnav users should use the postcode NW3 6LU - this will put you right outside the centre. Take the first turning on the left (along the side of the Centre) and you'll see the car park entrance.
The centre's nearest tube station is Finchley Road. Finchley Road is on the Metropolitan and Jubilee lines; as you leave the station, turn left, and you'll find us just past the small shops.
We're also a few minutes walk from Finchley Road & Frognal railway station, on the London Overground Richmond/Clapham Junction to Stratford line; turn right and walk along the main road - you'll find us on the right.
There is a bus stop right outside the O2 Centre Finchley Road. The 13, 113, 187, 268 and N113 all stop at the centre daily.
Our car park is easily accessible from Finchley Road (turn into Blackburn Road, just outside the Centre), and offers discounted tariffs for centre customers, and periods of free parking for Sainsbury's and Homebase customers. To be eligible for the Shopper tariff, your ticket must be stamped by one of the O2 Centre's retailers, including gym, cinema or any of our restaurants. See our parking tariff below:
Sainsbury's customers - Up to 2 hours free parking for customers spending £10 or more.
Homebase customers - Up to 1 hour free parking for customers spending £10 or more.
IMPORTANT: If your free parking time is overstayed you lose this discount and will pay the centre user tariff like other shoppers (i.e. if you spend 2 hours 30 minutes in the car park and get your parking validated at Sainsbury's you will pay £4.50 as per the table above.)
Take your parking ticket with you into the centre.
Get your parking ticket validated at one of the centre's shops that you visit for the user tariff. Your ticket can only be validated once and as such free parking time at Sainsbury's and Homebase cannot be added together.
Insert your parking ticket into a Pay Station on the way back to your vehicle. This is not necessary if you have had your parking validated at Homebase or Sainsbury's and are exiting within your allocated free time.
Insert your paid parking ticket into the exit slot to raise the barrier.
After paying at a Pay Station, or after getting your ticket validated at Homebase / Sainsbury's, you have 10 minutes to exit the car park. IF YOU EXCEED 10 MINUTES EXCESS FEES MAY BE CHARGED.
Lost parking tickets will be charged at the full daily rate of £35.
Unvalidated tickets can be paid for at the "last payment point".
Car park closes 30 minutes after the centre closes.
Vehicles remaining after closing time will be charged the full daily rate of £35.
There is no additional discount for disability blue-badge holders.
