Latest London parking reviews
Good value parking in a quiet street. Had to stop outside hotel main entrance and run in to speak to reception staff then drive round the corner to access car park. Fortunately no other traffic (or wardens) about! Hotel keeps car keys then collected them and went to retrieve car when ready to leave. Good sized and long parking space.Clare
Easy to find, great location, good price. The barrier was half down when we left (had no ticket so couldn't work out how to raise it) but luckily managed to squeeze the car through!Carmen
Great location as we were visiting UCLH Westmoreland St and just a short walk from car park. Booked via this company as easy website to navigate and good info and pics to help decision making.Great price as well as booked in advance. Very secure as gated car park and clean and bright - light was not working above the disabled bay we parked in though and some disabled bays currently out of use. As mentioned by others - you cannot get pay machine to accept barcode provided via App when leaving as no signal underground - I also printed it off as well but it printed so large it was too big to fit in front of the reader at pay machine! I had to wait to speak to an attendant as someone else was halving issues in front of me as well. Attendant was really helpful though - think he was used to this barcode issue! Will definitely use this car park again. Ps - toilets are in use at this car park currently - worth checking in advance as I did as we do not live local and travelled over 3 hours to get there.Dawn
Nice little underground car park, very easy to find and use. Having booked online it was very reasonably priced and good available parking spaces. Car was cool to come to after being in the very hot weather which was a bonus. Barriers go up automatically when entering and exiting that’s great. Within walking distance to most places. Will very likely use again in the future.Saira
Satnav took us straight there. A guy guided us into our parking space and Its right in the city. As you come out of parking space, to your left is st James's Park and gateway to London Eye, and Buckingham Palace, and to your right 5 mins down the road is all the shops. Best parking you'll ever find.Diane
