Parking at St Helen’s can be difficult, so please leave extra time, particularly on your first visit. Please note that you are liable for a parking ticket if you park on a double yellow line at any time, on a single yellow line line when parking restrictions are in force (at time of writing, 7am - 7pm weekdays, 7am - 11am Saturdays) on a single yellow line by a dropped kerb at any time, in a parking bay during controlled hours without paying the correct fee, or if you have parked with any of your vehicle's wheels on the pavement.

Details of parking restrictions are on the "Controlled Parking Zone" signs at the entrance to the City. Please also see the notes on the Corporation of London website about avoiding parking fines.

St Helen’s Place
There is a small car park close to the church in St Helen’s Place for use on Sunday mornings. This is primarily intended for newcomers and anyone with guests or small children. It’s run on a first-come, first-served basis, opening from 10:05 to 10:30am. The gates are locked during the morning meeting and re-open at noon. Vehicles must be removed by 12:30pm at the latest.

Great St Helen’s
A limited number of parking permits are available for use immediately outside the church in Great St Helen’s on Sunday mornings. Valid for one year, they are restricted to people with special requirements – such as those who have difficulty walking or have a number of small children. For more details, contact the church office.

Street Parking
Pay-and-display street parking bays in the City are free all day on Sundays, on Saturdays from 11am and on weekdays after 7pm, but ensure you check local signs. Roads with single yellow lines carry restrictions until 7pm on weekdays and 11am on Saturdays, but there is no restriction on Sundays.

City Car Parks
There are several Corporation of London car parks within walking distance of the church:

  • London Wall (underground between Aldersgate Street and Moorgate)
  • The Minories, Mansell Street
  • Tower Hill, Lower Thames Street
