Convenient on-street parking (1- and 2-hour) is usually available on nearby Danforth, High, State, Park, or Pleasant Streets. Metered parking spaces (on-street and lots) are also available within walking distance of the Mansion, as well as parking garages on Spring Street, roughly a 5-minute walk from the Mansion. Please note that there is no parking on the Mansion side of Danforth Street and that much of the parking across the street is limited to 15 minutes due to day school activity. We regret that there is no on-site parking at the Mansion. This parking map shows the timed parking in the Victoria Mansion area.
As we are located in a primarily residential neighborhood, it is possible that construction and maintenance may be happening nearby. We regret that we do not always have advance knowledge of some of these routine city activities and that it may impact parking and transportation. Visit Portland, Maine Parking for more information about city street maintenance. There is also a parking guide with information about types of parking, payment options, and garage locations and rates available on the Visit Portland website.
Visitors traveling by bicycle may utilize the bicycle racks located next to the Carriage House in the Mansion courtyard.
