Archwood House

If you are arriving by car, you must not park on Peckham Hill Street directly outside the front entrance due to the bus stop, zebra crossing and double yellow lines. There is no parking on site at Archwood House. There will be limited drop off spots on Bonar Road. Look out for UAL staff at the south end of the road, here you will be able to unload your vehicle and sign out a trolley. Once your items have been unloaded, we ask that you move your vehicle immediately to allow space for the next car to unload. We strongly recommend accessing Bonar Road from Commercial Way to help the traffic flow in one direction. There will be porters who will be able to assist with moving trolleys.
