Parking in London can be somewhat of a nightmare and although generally I am against using cars in the capital sometimes it is plain unavoidable.
I have searched through the dark corners of the internet to find some of the best places to park in London for those occasions when you have to resort to alternative means of transport over favoring the trusty tube.
In all seriousness though where possible I would reckon using the tube or bus systems as they are usually cheaper, quicker and less hassle as once you are on you don’t have to worry about anything. Also when things do go wrong it’s generally out of your hands.
We have a short tube guide that will hopefully help people whilst planning their journeys or searching for the ever elusive tube station on the map.
Free or cheap parking in London is a must for some people however so we put together a list and short reviews of some of the best places to park whether it be long stay parking or short term stop-overs. Hopefully this list will let you know where is cheapest to park and relevant attractions nearby that you may be traveling onward towards.
Tube station further out of London in higher numbered zones (see the tube map for zoning as prices vary) often offer parking facilities, prices are reasonably. These exist in an attempt to persuade suburbanites and commuters to ditch the wheels and slum it on public transport when out and about in central London. Sometimes it can be beneficial to go without a car too because then you won’t have to worry about the effort of driving back by a certain time to beat traffic, the effort of driving and finally you can have a good old drink!
