Park & Ride London
« on: December 05, 2016, 10:28:17 PM »
Hello,

I'm going to be in London this Friday-Sunday and have to drive because the train fares are ridiculous.

I want to avoid the stress and cost of parking in central London and don't mind a train/tube commute into the city. I'll be coming from the North on the M1.

Can anyone recommend me a particular park & ride car park? Do they get filled up on a Friday evening? The best I've found is the Stanmore tube station. It has around 450 parking spaces, which is a lot more than any others I've seen...

Thanks ;D

Check the price of the parking lot first, it could easily be more than the train ticket. I'd guess £10 -16 per day.

 It will also be pretty stressful to drive a strange route at rush hour , find parking and then take the train into London.  All that makes a train ride sound pretty nice.

I agree. Let the train take the strain.

If you search you will find lots of sites that give parking prices.

Or look for a cheap train price and make sure you book a seat. Or snap up one of the few very cheap first class ticket/s that can work out cheaper than a standard ticket.

Or split tickets for cheaper train fares
