There are also 12 Blue Badge parking spaces on Exhibition Road, which are managed by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and cannot be booked in advance. You can park there for four hours between 8.30 - 18.30. More information on the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea's website.
You can leave coats and luggage in our cloakrooms in the Darwin Centre atrium (just inside the Queen's Gate entrance) and by the Exhibition Road entrance.
Luggage is charged according to weight. Folded pushchairs can be left for free.
Please note that large and wheeled suitcases that cannot be carried must be left in the cloakrooms and paid for at the appropriate cost. This is subject to availability of space, so it is recommended that visitors avoid bringing such items if possible.
