Barbican Estate parking is staffed with a 24 hour concierge service to help with parking and maintain resident and visitor safety.

Parking permits

Permanent parking for cars and motorcycles is offered to Barbican Estate leaseholders and their sub-tenants using long term or permanent parking licences.

To apply for, or renew, a parking permit please contact the Barbican Estate Office.

Homeowners, ie Leaseholders, have indefinite permits:

Leaseholders are charged an initial administration fee plus quarterly charges which can be added to their quarterly service charges or leaseholders may elect to pay in advance for a fixed term duration.

Sub-tenants however do have permits that expire. The longest period available without renewing is 12 months. A window decal to display in the car showing the expiry date is provided:

Sub-tenants: are permitted to park for fixed-term durations with the written consent of their landlord or managing agent. These are non-refundable and payable in advance at the Barbican Estate Office.

At the end of the fixed term a sub tenant can apply to extend the licence for another fixed term by contacting the Barbican Estate Office.

If you live on another estate administered by the City of London Corporation parking permits are managed separately.

RingGo - quick and easy way to pay for temporary parking

Setting up a RingGo account

RingGo is widely used in all on-street parking areas in the City of London and other London Boroughs, so you and your visitors may already have an account that you can use for temporary parking.

If you have not used the automated payment system by RingGo before, you will need to set up an account and the easiest way to do this is by going to www.myringgo.co.uk.

Click on the 'sign up' button in the top right corner and enter the details requested. This includes a valid credit or debit card and at least one vehicle registration number. You will also be asked to enter a number password (PIN) that you will need to access your account. You can create your own number password (PIN) or use the last four digits of your credit or debit card.
