I only know of Chertsey and Walton. There are a couple north London, but non I know of for walking distance. Then I would'nt leave a m/h in London to risky.

Don't forget the LEZ if you are thinking of taking your mh to London. Check the transport for London website to ensure you are compliant. Otherwise it will cost you big time £200 a day springs to mind.

Stay outside of M25 and catch public transport.

If you really must park in central London.. check this map, not only council and private but also private drives that owners rent out.. click on the flags for details ..

http://en.parkopedia.co.uk/parking/london/

bear in mind there is a £10 daily congestion charge and most car parks have height barriers..

My advice is to use either Abbey Wood or Crystal Palace CC sites

Why not Skype the queen and ask her if you can park up for the night on her drive way
