Latest London parking reviews
Great experience, easy to book and access it. And of course the price was a great deal!Caroline
We parked here for a theatre trip on Sunday 9th Jan. We had no problems finding the car park using Google Maps. A twenty minute walk over Waterloo Bridge and along the Strand and we were at the theatre. Will definitely use this parking again. Excellent value.Judith
Easy to book and pay for. There was no designated parking space as far as I could tell,but there plenty of spaces. The number plate recognition system on entry and exit worked perfectly,though it was difficult to find the pedestrian exit,very poorly signposted with several of the exits closed.Alan
Good location and safe car park, only downside was no working lifts on a Sunday, this was a little tricky with a pram. Otherwise very convenient for the south bank.Alexander
excellent /easy - number plate recognisedStuart
Very easy to find, lots of free spaces, good distances around the spaces. Clean. Cheap and within 10 mins walk I was in Covent Garden. Excellent.Jim
Excellently located near Southbank. Plenty of spaces available - albeit lots of pillars making some spaces a bit of a squeeze for larger vehicles. Carpark attendant friendly!Martin
