Travelling to Barnet High Street by car?

There are a few short stay parking spaces actually in the High St. but these are, of course, fiercely contested!
There are two car parks convenient for the northern end of town. One is the multi-storey within The Spires, open shopping hours only.

Another is in Stapylton Road immediately behind The Spires and this is always available

Two other car parks are convenient for the southern end of town. Moxon St/Victors Way is for short stay parking and Fitzjohn Avenue for long stayers.

These three car parks are council run and the following link to LBBarnet’s website allows you to check the charges and the method of payment.

Most of the streets around the town centre are residents parking, although there are some pay and display spaces in most of them. These spaces are more expensive than any of the car parks.

The current exception to this is the grid of roads in zone D at the southern end of the High St. They are restricted to residents only between 2 and 3 pm Monday to Friday. At other times free parking is available. Check the signs in the street you choose to park in!
