By car

Moorfields is on the A501, and is approximately 6.5 miles from junction one on the M1. There is very limited meter parking near the RDCEC. The nearest NCP car park is approximately 10 minutes walk/a bus ride away down City Road at Finsbury Square.

Congestion charge for vehicles: the congestion charge operates in Central London, Monday - Friday, 7am - 6pm (excluding public holidays). The RDCEC is located just inside the zone. Visitors coming to the RDCEC should note that all side streets are within this zone, and if these are used you will be required to pay the charge. There are alternative car parking spaces  close to the RDCEC (on Nile Street) that are situated outside the zone.

Parking restrictions around the hospital south of City Road (ie. Islington CPZ) now apply 24 hours a day except on Sunday after 6am.
