Parking around South Kensington and Chelsea

It’s important that Deliveroo continues to be a constructive part of the communities we work in, and you can help us achieve that by following the rules and behaving in a friendly manner towards neighbours, restaurants and members of the public.

We know that parking is limited in SKC, but it’s really important that you only park where it is legal and safe to do so. That includes:

  • Not parking on double-yellow lines
  • Not blocking or parking on the pavement
  • Not parking in restricted or permit-only bays

You should also make sure to never ride on the pavement or in pedestrianised streets, and never go the wrong way down one-way roads.

Breaking any of these laws is illegal. It can result in fines for you and makes it harder for us to continue operating and offering you orders in SKC. Riders caught doing these things will also no longer be allowed to work with Deliveroo.

Particular roads to avoid parking on include:

  • Stanhope Mews and Stanhope Gardens near Gloucester Road
  • Child’s Place and restricted bays on Hogarth Road in Earls Court

Child's Place and Hogarth Road, Earls Court

Please do not park anywhere in Child’s Place in Earls Court (on the map below in red).

When picking up orders from this area please park in the bays outside the Health and Wellbeing Centre in Hogarth Road, shown on the map below in green.

Gloucester Road, Stanhope Mews and Stanhope Gardens

When collecting orders from restaurants in Gloucester Road, please make sure to park in the motorcycle bays on Harrington Gardens (opposite Gloucester Road) or Courtfield Road (between Gloucester Road station and The Bailey’s hotel). They’re marked in green on the map below.

Make sure not to park on double-yellow lines anywhere, and to follow parking and permit restrictions. That includes the double-yellow lines and permit parking around Stanhope Mews and Stanhope Gardens. Ignoring these restrictions is breaking the Highway Code and could mean getting a fine of up to £130.

Please also do not park on Stanhope Gardens, either outside Nando’s or anywhere on the opposite side of the road.

When you’re waiting for orders or making deliveries, remember to keep the noise down and be mindful of people living or working closeby. You can do your bit by turning off your engine when you’re parked up or stationary, and recycle or bin any rubbish.

Please also read through our post on ‘Deliveroo riders and the community‘ to make sure you’re working sociably in your area, particularly around where people’s homes are.
