Latest Richmond parking reviews
Perfectly located for a trip to Kew Gardens. It was easy to find and affordable. Many thanks for a good serviceCarolyn
Great parking location and easy to find. Only comment would be the shingle needs to be pushed back in place to make more even drive in.Natasha
The parking space was adequate for my large car, the owner was super helpful and professional. I would definitely use his services again, thank you!Debbie
Easy to find and park but we had not realised that we could park in the area for free on Sundays!Anthea
Excellent communications from the owner and easy to find in a relatively quiet cul-de-sac. We parked our Honda Jazz in the right hand spot. Involved a couple of simple manoeuvres to get the angle correct so the owners could use their door. No overhang on to pavement with this size car.Edward
A great spot to leave the car and walk to Kew Gardens. We found the space very easily, it is exactly as shown & with google maps in hand, it was a very easy walk to the Kew Gardens Lion Gate. The walk took 10-15 mins but does involve a stepped bridge over the railway, which is worth bearing in mind if you have a pushchair or find stairs challenging.Nicki
Perfect for Kew Gardens walked to lions gate in around 10 minutes. Sainsburys across the road for any picnic bits. Great price :£)Danny
Easy to use although expensive. Machine crashed so used the app but machine had apparently taken payment so paid twice, but support centre were excellent and refunded very quickly.Deborah
Easy to find and perfect location for our day’s itineraryClaire
