Can anyone use the gardens?
The gardens are available for the use of all residents. However, to preserve the tranquility of the Square and for the residents’ benefit, they are not open to the public.
Are there any apartments available for short lets?
The apartments in Dolphin Square have a minimum rental period of eight months. However, Dolphin House, which is opening soon, and comprises the apartments in the North wing of the Square provides short let apartments from one night to three months. There will also be a limited number of guest rooms opening later in the year which will be available for the use of Dolphin Square residents at competitive nightly rates. So if you find yourself with an unexpected guest and no extra space for them to stay, the guest rooms are the perfect option.
Are any of the apartments available to buy?
No, none of the apartments are available for sale, all of the apartments in Dolphin Square are rental only.
Is there on site parking available?
There are both above ground and underground car parks in which residents can rent spaces. There is also an on-site car Park, which is available for residents’ use at a daily rate.
Are there bike racks in the Square?
Facilities for secure bike parking are provided in the underground car park. Perfect for taking advantage of the Square’s central London location.
Is the Square in the congestion charging zone?
The Square is lucky to fall both within and outside the zone! It is possible to access the Square from the Grosvenor road on the South side of the Square without entering the zone (the Square’s carriageways are private and therefore do not fall within the zone). However, because the roads that surround the Square to the North, East and West do fall within the zone, tenants of the Square benefit from the residents discount. So living at Dolphin Square brings you the best of both worlds!

There are a number “Streetcars” on site at Dolphin Square. Once a resident has joined the Streetcar pay as you go scheme they can use any of the cars in the national Streetcar network, including the Dolphin Square cars, which are conveniently located in their own dedicated spaces in the above ground car park. www.streetcar.co.uk
