Saturday 6 May 2023

On Saturday 6 May 2023 there will be extensive road closures in the Westminster area for the Coronation of Kings Charles III. As a result, many of the normal coach facilities will not be available, especially those on Park Lane and Victoria Embankment.

Therefore, TfL strongly advise that private hire coaches visiting central London on the day of the Coronation, especially those with passengers going to the event should drop off at the locations listed below and then use coach parks (pre-booking recommended) outside the central area.

TfL also advise that coaches pick up passengers at or near the coach parks as access & journey times from parking locations back into central London will be difficult to anticipate and could be excessive.  

Suggested Central London drop off points – existing operational restrictions apply.

Kingsway (existing coach bays between Aldwych and Holborn)

Madame Tussauds (existing coach bays Marylebone Road eastbound)

Natural History and V&A museums (existing coach bays on Cromwell Road) Parking
