As per a previous post I'm also driving to game on boxing day v Brighton and need to find parking.

Are there any schools that offer parking outside the restricted area as I'd sooner my money went there than too a random car park.

Anything within a 30 minute walk or so
Bump. Currently weighing up whether to drive through from SW London or park near Vauxhall and get the tube up ?

Hoping C London roads will be quiet?

Parked on someone’s drive yesterday (JustPark, £13) near Edmonton Green and walked ~40 mins. We got straight away onto the M25 once we were back to car. Doing similar on Boxing Day.

Have you got a bike Rob you could cut that 40 minutes down to ten. :)

Anyone know what current Sainsbury’s parking time limit is? Doing Sky Walk tomorrow and realistically need at least 2hrs...read it’s anywhere between 1.5-3hrs

Resurrecting this as we just got tickets for the Arsenal game on the 8th and will be driving down. Last time I was at a game we parked up in the Ikea and then had a mad dash back to get out before it closed (we parked in the underneath bit). Any advice on whether:

A) Parking in Ikea is still feasible
B) If so presumably the "outside" car park area is better from a closing up perspective?

If Ikea is out of the question then what are other possible alternatives? Last time there was a fair few options for on the day parking on the walk between Ikea and the stadium in the industrial areas, but is this still likely the case? I don't mind paying £10-15 quid but not more.

I normally park north of Pymmes park and walk down - free street parking

Ok thanks, that might be an option and at least if it's free street parking there's no risk. I'd still prefer the Ikea car park if possible, but obviously don't want to get locked in given they close at 5pm on a Sunday - anyone else used Ikea recently?

Seen another post on this, so thought i'd update. Went with Ikea yesteday and decided to go to the outdoor car park rather than the one underneath the building. We didn't stay for the ladies game so made it back to Ikea by about 4.40pm and actually popped inside to have a quick look around as it was still open.

Not sure if they get more serious on actual match days or not, but there was no-one actively checking or anything, so presume it's pretty ok unless you get back after closing time.

The walk is easy enough too, about 20mins to the north end of the stadium.

Does anyone know if the tariff road parking areas are open this season? Do you need to reserve?

Ok I'm hoping someone reads this, and volenteers to do something if you are going to the Watford game on Sunday.

opposite the Spurs shop is a school called "St Francis de Sales". I know a few years back (talking last season in WHL they used to allow parking, I'm not sure if it's for a selected group (I know Gary Mabbutt used it when I last parked there)

anyway if anyone that's going Sunday could they please ask (if it's still being used) if they still:

1. use some spots for blue badge users
2. do they charge
3. how early do they start letting people in?

I'm sure it used to be free for blue badges, and I think the last time I used it, it was 3 hours before we beat Boro in our final season. I've been to a few games since the new stadium opened and luckily I've managed to get 1 of the parking spaces the disabled membership give out in Sainsburys or under the stadium.

if anyone could find out I'd be truely grateful as it would mean I could book tickets last minute dot com if I'm unable to book them when they do come on sale as like a mug I've re-joined as a member (Man U & Leeds booked, and luckily got a parking spot).

Anyone know if the Irish centre still does parking? I’m bringing the Ukrainian part of my family down so can’t be bothered to pay a silly amount on trains from Rugby

Don't know the place but when you do a google search comes up as closed down, some of those industrial units in Brantwood Rd have parking, was about £20 last season expect it's gone up though.

I'm going on a stadium tour on Saturday and heading to central London for the night returning on Sunday. Does anyone know of anywhere I can park near the stadium please? I would get the train but there's a replacement bus service. Alternatively I do have somewhere else I can park and get the tube/train but would be easier to park near the stadium if possible.
