Information about parking in Ilford

Ilford is a town nine miles east of Charing Cross in London and has a population of 200000. At various times during the past, it has been a centre for brick and cement manufacture, film making, electronics and even making jukeboxes, but now it is primarily a commuter town, commercial and retail centre, and local government centre for the London Borough of Redbridge. People’s reasons for being here have changed, but they still ask the question; where to park in Ilford?
