This is situated in Parkfield Street, just off Upper Street and is accessed via Berners Road, which runs along the side of the Design Centre (see map below).
Disabled parking is available.

A blue badge (and clock) allows you to park in Torrens Street, provided there is space. There is also level access from this street to Block 2 of Angel Square, where the hearing centre is situated. Normal arrangements for using a blue badge apply. Please note that we are unable to guarantee or reserve a parking space on this road as it does not form a part of the hearing centre itself.
Blue badge holders can also contact the London Borough of Islington to establish the availability of parking in the vicinity of the hearing centre for the day and time of their hearing. Click here to visit the London Borough of Islington's parking web pages.
More information on the Blue Badge scheme can be found on the London Councils website Opens in a new window
Please remember that if you are driving into central London for your hearing you should check in advance whether you need to pay the Congestion Charge.
