A guide to NCP Great Eastern Street

Anyone who has been to London will know how difficult it can be to find a parking space.

While there are plenty of car parks dotted across the city, the number of people commuting and visiting the centre every day means finding a location that is secure and offers value for money can be very difficult, especially at the weekends.

One of the main challenges facing drivers is securing a spot within walking distance of their final destination. Let’s be honest, there is no point taking the car into London if you end up having to jump on a tube afterwards in order to get to your location. Not only is this a really expensive way to travel, it will also be very time consuming.

NCP has developed a good reputation over the years for offering top-quality car parks – indeed, it claims to be the UK’s number one car park operator. Not only does the company have more car parks than anyone else, but it also secures all of its electricity from green sources. This means you know that you’re using a socially-responsible company.

NCP Great Eastern Street

If you are planning a day or night out in trendy Hoxton, which is well known for its bars, restaurants and clubs, this car park is the perfect place to leave your vehicle. You will only be a short walk from Hoxton Square and Curtain Road, so great venues such as The Book Club and Cargo will be nearby. The car park is also close to Old Street and Shoreditch – two creative hubs that boast galleries, markets and much more. It also means you can check out the East London Tech City development, which is fast becoming one of London’s biggest modern-day success stories.

If you are heading to the Barbican Centre – the largest performing arts centre and conference venue of its kind in Europe – NCP Great Eastern Street is only a couple of minutes’ walk away. This building boasts a 1,949-seat concert venue, a 1,166-seat theatre, an art gallery, a cinema and is home to the London Symphony Orchestra.

In total, there are a total of 125 spaces at the car park, with three wide bays and two disabled bays. The address is NCP Great Eastern Street, Great Eastern Street, London, EC2A 3ER.

Park Mark

Best of all, the site has been awarded Park Mark standard for safety, which is the national standard for UK car parks that have low crime and measures in place to ensure the safety of people and vehicles. Only a quarter of car parks have achieved the Park Mark and this gives you the peace of mind that your car is in good hands. NCP Great Eastern Street has been rigorously assessed by specially-trained police assessors.
