DWP Head Office (London)


The DWP head office is in Westminster, right next to Central Hall. In a car, you can turn onto Tothill Street from the A302/Victoria Street and the A3212 and Broad Sanctuary, past Westminster Abbey. Please check any traffic restrictions in advance. However, the nearest car parking facility is ParkBee, on Abbey Orchard Street. This is a 4-minute walk from the DWP office and the day rate is £17.50. It would be cheaper and easier to rely on London’s robust public transport. The closest underground station is St. James’s Park for the Circle and District lines, which is less than 500 feet away. Plenty of bus routes call at the stops around the corner near Westminster Abbey, including inter-city buses.
