Latest High Street Kensington parking reviews
Need a reliable parking for under 1 hour without having the Hassel of driving around searching for a metered parking and worrying if I get delayed I could get a ticket. So this 2 hour time was just right for me. Easy access to high Street. Parking secure. Recommend.Martina
Good large space for a 4x4, easy access and nice / informative person running the space allocation.Jonathan
Parked with no problems and saved £9 on the regular pricePaul
Very convenient and good value for moneyMED
Expensive, but otherwise very good. Very easy to add more time online when I prolonged my stay. One complaint: the marked spaces are NOT wide enough: it’s claimed that a 4x4 will fit. My Ford Focus didn’t fit, or at least there would be very little space indeed had someone had to park next to me. Apart from that this was a great, but expensive, service. Pay attention when you drive there, as one wrong turn or missed turn can easily send you on a 10 minute detour around that part of London!Jamie
