Latest Richmond parking reviews
Very straightforward, very accessible. Only 7-10 minute walk to Kew Gardens. Highly recommend.Maria Elizabeth
As we were informed the sat nav did take us to a neighbouring road, but because we were aware of it we found the space very easily. It isn’t the biggest of spaces, we have a larger car, but was suitable. Slightly difficult getting off the driveway due to cars parked on road but this wouldn’t stop us using again. Thank youJessica
I would definitely recommend "yourparkingspace" and this particular parking spot. It's very useful for going into London, however a big warning...due to constraints on how the parking space has to set up their account, the space is in the road behind Sheen Park, (Alton Road). It's not the user's fault. The software asks for your home address and wrongly assumes that the parking space is in the same road / postal code, so my advice is check the picture on the app is the same as you can see out of your windscreen. The owner was very understanding as was the person who's space I occupied.Ian
easy and safeBharat
An easy to use car park. It was simple to get in and out (barriers have been removed, presumably part of a covid-19 measure) and the spaces not narrow. Some of the spaces are covered. Note that the entrance to the car park is not on Lower Mortlake Road itself, it's on Trinity Road, just off Lower Mortlake Road.Neil
