Driving & parking

The Gillett Street Car Park is opposite us, on the north edge of Gillett Square: charges are £1.50 per hour during the day. FREE FROM 7 P.M. AND ON SUNDAYS.

Access is via Boleyn Road – there’s no access from Kingsland Road on the other side of Gillett Square.

From North or South: turn onto Crossway at the traffic lights junction with Shacklewell Lane, and then left onto Boleyn Road at the next lights. From Newington Green: straight down Boleyn Road, then left by the supermarket beyond the lights at Crossway.

From East or West: no left turn onto Kingsland Road from Balls Pond Road, and no right turn onto Kingsland Road from Dalston Lane. You’ll need to turn onto King Henry’s Walk from Balls Pond Road, and then right onto Boleyn Road at the traffic lights, then turn left by the supermarket. Follow signs for the Gillett Street car park.
