Expandable element Where can disabled customers park?
For customers attending events in our main auditorium there are usually ten free parking spaces for Blue Badge holders in the West Car Park.

For some events, such as during the BBC Proms Season, the car park is unavailable and a limited number of Blue Badge spaces are made available on the south-east side of the Hall near Door 2.
On rare occasions we may not be able to offer any Blue Badge parking at all due to event requirements. Information about roadside Blue Badge parking bays can be found on the Westminster City Council website.
