    Route planner to avoid the London Congestion Charge 28th Mar 10 at 12:24 PM
    We will be travelling to Crystal Palace from Fleetwood in July and (trying to be organised) have been checking the route on the RAC website. I can't see where it says anything about the zone on the route. Will we have to go through the congestion zone to get there? Is Crystal Palace within the zone and if it is does that mean we have to pay for our car every day it is parked there? (We are going to a campsite.)Many thanks for any help.

    I think I've managed to answer my own question! We will be arriving on a Saturday and leaving the following week on the Sunday so there is no congestion charges on these days anyway. (Car will be parked entire time.)

    Would we be charged for the Monday to Friday that we are there as I've found out that the site we are going to is inside the LEZ (that is different to the congestion zone isn't it?)?

    Here is a map of the CC Zone.

    Crystal Palace is not in the zone.
    Just because I've written it doesn't mean that
    either you or I have to believe it.

    LEZ is Low Emission Zone. If you are driving a car (ie not a minibus, motorcaravan, large van, lorry), don't worry about it.

  • While I oft bemoan Xmas being a retail festival. It's strange today many are bitter that shops are REDUCING prices, usually its the opposite

  • And leave people held hostage to high Xmas prices? Our tradition was Xmas discounts spread in Nov/Dec not on one day

  • John Lewis website is down - its price matching black friday deals. Maybe its a good day to buy cheap extra servers?
