Our family plans to visit London. Is it safe, to park our car for 1 week at Leatherhead railway station ?, so we can visit London by train, bus and metro. We are willing to pay for a safe parking place.
Greetings from Holland,
Re: car parking
You have to pay for most public off-street parking in the UK, I'm afraid....although you may be lucky and find an on-street spot.
I don't know Leatherhead well (have only been there once, briefly), but there is a list of council-owned car parks here:
and their charges:
The second link shows which car parks allow you to park for periods of up to 24 hours. You will have to buy a new ticket each day. There is a fine of 50GBP (reduced to 25GBP if paid within 14 days) for overstaying the time you have paid for:
The station car park may be full of commuters' cars, so you may have problems finding a parking place. I do not know if you are allowed to park there overnight but I'm pretty sure you will have to pay.
Re: car parking
I took this from the train company website - car parking information for Leatherhead - additionally CCTV protects the area.
Opening hours Monday to Friday: 24 hours, Saturday: 24 hours, Sunday: 24 hours
Number of car parking spaces 205
Parking charges Daily: £3.70,
Taxi rank Yes
TrainTaxi website link TrainTaxi website
Cycle storage 28 spaces, sheltered, with CCTV
Cycle storage location beside car park, Platform 1
Leatherhead is an extremely busy commuter station on weekdays, so unless you get there very early the 205 available spaces will be occupied.
Hope that helps.
Travel Tips for Leatherhead
My New Home Town
Deep in the heart of the Surrey Hills lies my new home.. Leatherhead. The River Mole runs through this perfect, English village... what a place to walk each day. The river got its name because of how it tunnels underground between Leatherhead and Dorking.*
