    Get a second mortgage for parking in London.

    If you can, park outside London and get the tube in.

    If Im visitng the city (and work are paying my expenses) I usually park at Heathrow and get the express.

    But there are 5 of us with luggage, so Im hoping to park overnight in secure parking. I knwo it will be expensice, but between 5 it wont be much and parking + petrol is much cheaper than 5x train tickets plus parking at the station.

    There's a few NCPs near Barbican, iirc.

    Staying at Club Quarters perchance?

    sadly (for me) im paying hence parking in the centre and not jumping on the express.

    id rather pay £20 and knwo car is safe than pay £10 and get it knicked.


    i think its a thistle hotel, not 100%.

    Don't think your car will be nicked unless its rare or super duper expensive car, Barbican is a wealthy persons area IMO.

    On-street parking should be free from 6:30PM on Saturday and all day Sunday. Might be all day Saturday, but check the signs.
