    Parking near tube for wimbledon

    Parking near tube for wimbledon 2nd Jun 08 at 9:55 AM
    My OH and a friend have tickets for Wimbledon (a Friday).

    For the past few years, he has been lucky enough to have a friend who lived in Wimbledon so parking wasn't a problem. However, the friend now lives in Norwich which isn't quite so convenient!

    We've just spent the weekend in London staying in the Ealing area and all the streets around the tube are permit parking only.

    When visiting London in the past, we have always driven to Cockfosters and used street parking there but I'm guessing that the residential streets are all going to be permit parking now - can anyone confirm this, please?

    Has anyone got any other solutions? Obviously, OH will not want to park his new (to us anyway) car in dodgy areas.

    He is going to look into the train but we suspect it will be prohibitively expensive - he doesn't want to be commited to returning at a specific time in case play gets extended or rained off and he wants to return later/earlier.

    Of course, if you happen to have a drive in the Wimbledon area, I'm sure he would be willing to come to an agreement!
