Getting to the Market

Address: New Covent Garden Market, London, SW8 5BH

The Flower Market is located on Nine Elms Lane next to Booker. We have recently moved here from our old building which was also on Nine Elms Lane.

By car – Enter from Nine Elms Lane and turn left into the Flower Market, through the barriers. For sat navs, use the postcode SW8 5BH.

By rail – The nearest stations are Battersea Park (National Rail and London Overground) and Vauxhall (Victoria Line and National Rail). From Battersea Park station it’s a 9 min walk along Nine Elms Lane past Battersea Power Station. From Vauxhall station it’s a 16 min walk along Nine Elms Lane.

By bus – Buses 156, 344 and 436 all stop on Nine Elms Lane right outside the Flower Market.

Entry to the Market

Simply pull a ticket on entering and pay on foot before leaving at one of the pay stations. £5 gives you three hours parking. Costs rise after that, with three-four hours costing £25. You can enter the Flower Market with both commercial vehicles (vans) and private vehicles (cars).

If you visit the market twice or more a week, it works out cheaper to buy an annual entry permit. To find out more about permits, please call our Operations Team on 020 7720 2211.

Pedestrians enter the market free of charge. 

Parking at the Market

There are two parking floors in the Flower Market. The ground floor is under cover, well lit, and with a max height of 4.20m for those with tall vehicles. The first floor is open air and there are three goods lifts, each of which fits two large auction trolleys, connecting the car park to the Flower Hall.

Road Traffic System

Please remember that the Road Traffic Act applies to all roads in the market and that there is a speed limit of 20mph throughout the market, unless otherwise indicated. Please also be aware of Fork Lift Trucks and pedestrians at all times.
