    Not sure about any that are 1 a day, in our area there are a few stations that are 2.50 per day, we are on the Metropolitan, Piccadily, and Jubilee lines - not sure if that helps.

    All tube station car parks are here.
    If you're coming down the M1 then Stanmore at the end of the jubilee line is handy.

    Hi Lollapalooza01, I'm in Northampton too. We go to London alot, on Sundays, and drive to central London. There's no congestion charge, and we generally manage park on a single yellow line - which is free. If we can't manage to park on a single yellow we head to an NCP car park, its still cheaper than train tickets and underground tickets for two adults (our kids are 3 and 4 so free on the train)
    We've had loads of really cheap days out in London, we went to the history museum last week, which is free entry and I made a picnic.

    I'm on the same train line too (but further down) and use either Stanmore or Chorleywood as my cheap tube alternatives. If you're going to do this a lot its well worth getting an Oyster card. Stanmore costs 1 to park at weekends, Chorleywood costs 1 on Saturday and is free on Sunday. Fares are slightly more from Chorleywood, but the line is faster and the station is further out from London so petrol may be slightly less.

    An additional bonus is that if there is a concert at Wembley Arena or an event at the stadium you can use either station mentioned at a weekend and get there for 1 each way on Oyster (as well as the parking being free on a Sunday at Chorleywood). I can generally get a seat too as most people are taking tubes in the other direction.

    I live in Northampton and went to London on Saturday. We came off M1 at Junction 4, about a mile down the road is Edgware station. You can park in the Sainsburys next door in a kind of sub car park for commuters which is 2.50 for the day. This is on the northern line and we were in centre of London within 20 minutes of parking up.

    Thanks for really useful info. We were planning a couple of days in London when we next visited my parents who live in Hertfordshire and after pricing up train fares for the family it would have been cheaper to get a hotel! Will definitely be driving to a tube station now. And kids under 11 travel free in London so extra saving there too
