Car Parks and Parking in Streatham

Parking in Streatham

Unlike nearby areas like Clapham, Brixton and Balham, parking in Streatham is largely unrestricted and rarely requires a permit. So for now there aren’t many permit holder only roads and therefore you are likely to find on street parking down the majority of roads from the High Road. Make sure you check road markings and signs to make sure you are OK to park before you leave your vehicle.

If however you require secure parking or a car park then you can find the best ones below.


There’s secure parking at the large Tesco Extra near Streatham Station and the leisure centre. You can park for a couple of hours but you do have to spend £5 or over in the store and ask for your parking voucher on checkout.

    There’s also a car park at the large Sainsbury’s near Tesco. Free parking in Streatham is not hard to find!

    Hi Katy, thanks for letting us know. We’ve added it to the list. Hopefully this will build over time as more people get in touch with their local knowledge.

    Hello I’ll be moving by Streatham Hill station, not necessarily expecting to find parking on my doorstep but are the roads mainly unrestricted?
