LONDON PARKING

Finding a parking space in London seems to get more complicated by the day. What with the congestion charge, over zealous parking attendants, confusing regulations and a myriad of different type of parking meter to contend with, it's no wonder motorists are confused and frustrated. In the resulting chaos every day in Central London 7,255 tickets are issued, 384 cars are clamped and 132 cars are towed way. Park-Up.com was set up to ease the motorist's and motorcyclist's burden by providing you with the street by street lowdown on where to find a parking space. You no longer need to drive around aimlessly hunting for that elusive space - we have every one of London's car parks and on-street parking locations on our searchable database. Of the 250 car parks in Central London, only one is free - and that's only at the weekends. Every one of Central London's streets has some kind of parking restriction on it. It is now easy to not fall foul of local parking restrictions by using Park-Up.com. Park-Up.com allows you to compare the cost of street parking and car parks and make the appropriate choice for your journey.
