There are a limited number of secure residents’ parking spaces available at Elephant Central.

At Elephant Central, we can only offer parking to those with a resident’s parking permit.

The entrance to the car park is located off New Kent Road, next to Sainsbury’s. It has electrically controlled gates that are operated by your eAccess fob.

If you have a resident’s parking permit, you must:

  • Register your vehicle details with Get Living
  • Display the permit in your vehicle whenever it is parked in the car park
  • Do not rent the space to a non-resident
  • Park only in your allocated space.
More Parking Info

Bicycle Storage

Secure cycle parking is available in the upper basement, accessible via a dedicated cycle lift.

Each cycle parking room is fitted with CCTV which is monitored 24/7.

Free identity tags for your bike are available from your Relationship Management Team.

It is up to you to:

  • Provide your own locking device to secure your bike to the racks
  • Arrange bicycle insurance.

Please do not take your bike into:

  • Your home, including the balcony
  • Any of the building’s common areas including entrance lobbies, terraces and lifts (except the cycle lift).

For health and safety reasons, we don’t recommend using the ramp that leads onto New Kent Road from the car park: it’s steep (1 in 10) and there is not much room for cars to pass bikes.

Public Transport

Elephant & Castle is brilliantly connected by public transport – and there are some great walking and cycling routes too.

You’re in Zone 1 here, so you have excellent transport links by National Rail, Bus and TfL Underground.

Cycling and Walking

Because Elephant & Castle is so central, it’s easy to get around on foot or by bike.

Cycle Superhighway 7, which heads direct to the City, passes through Elephant & Castle. There are five Santander cycle docking stations in the area, and new cycle paths are being added all the time.

When it comes to walking, there are lots of new and well-lit footpaths around the immediate neighbourhood – making it easy to get to local facilities. It’s not far either to the South Bank, where you can walk along the riverside to lots of London destinations.
