    Hi has anyone got a top tip for parking a High Top van conversion close to a fast train station to London - I am driving from Dartford back to Brimingham but need to go into the City for a meeting
    I was thinking Milton Keynes but if I am delayed on the motorway I would like a couple of other options near the M25/M1 Junction. Thank you so much !

    Stanmore tube station car park is good for access to M1 and Jubilee line. Not sure about height barriers, think it's ok reference post code HA7 4PD and street view may clarify that one.

    Depending what you wanted to do you could Park very close to manor park station during the day (Capel Road E12. No parking restrictions) trains to Liverpool St every 10 mins. Only 10-15 mins drive from M11.

    I park at Stanmore (in my car) regularly. They should be able to arrange the height if you ask them as I know that they do the Asda delivery collect thing from there so they must cater for their box vans.

    She lived at No 123 I'm told that house prices have now reached an all time high in the road. I used to play on the flats and swim in the pond when I was a kid.:)

    Ebbsfleet, only 5 minutes from Dartford and you can be into centre of London in no time at all. Depending where you are going you can get the train to Stratford and then the Jubilee line. Not cheap but is the quickest
