Parking At LHR

Thu Feb 09, 2006 12:15 am

Hi everyone,

I'll be driving down to London over the weekend and was wondering if there is anywhere around LHR that I could park the car for a few hours on Sunday afternoon? Whenever I've been before to watch aircraft, I've been on the Underground, so I'm not familiar with the local roads at all.

Any help would be great.

Regards,

Tim.

Hi Tim,
If "27" runways are in use there is a small carpark by Hatton Cross station for 27L and the Visitor Centre for 27R. If they are 09's you can park by the side of the road to view landing aircraft. I can sort out a map for you when I get home from work, if you need it.

Regards
Mark

Thanks Mark,

I know where both those two places are, but have no idea how to drive to them (I'll be coming off the M4), so a map would be great.

Would I be OK leaving the car at these spots for any length of time, as I will have to go up into town later on and I didn't really want to drive into central London?

Regards,

Tim.

I got moved on by the police 2 weeks back for parking on the side of the road at the 09's spot, there were lots of cars tho, I'd been there 2 hours, but I'd noever been to that spot before but I wouldn't leave your car. think your best bet is to M4 then M25 for T4 then I think its right at the 2nd roundabout for 09's or straight past T4 for Hatton Cross.
