Suitable for smaller cars/hatchbacks. About up to the size of a VW Golf will comfortably fit. Avoid parking attendants who regularly patrol this controlled zone. 3 mins walk to Colindale tube.
The main arterial routes out of London, the M1, A1, A41 and A5 are all close by,while London s orbital M25 motorway is within a 15 minute drive. The nearby A406 North Circular Road gives access to the west and east of London while avoiding the Congestion Charge zone.
Previous users of the parking space include trainee police officers at the Peel Centre and visitors to the Health Protection Agency, which often has a full car park by early morning.

Great location for the tube station. Space was a bit tight and awkward to park in however there was warning of this prior to booking.
Can’t remember what the review said about the tightness of the space but would stress it’s correct it suits a smaller car and even with 25 plus years of driving it is a little stressful negotiating the kerb and then the pavement to basically park literally outside the window.. I was however reassured a little my car would be watched in the day as can only assume was the home owner cam out and looked me up and down and the car before ambling back indoors bless her.. either that or she was just a nosy neighbour lol
Efficient and just as advertised. A really useful parking space. You need to be good at parallel parking but fine for us.
This space is exactly as advertised, saving one thing. The space is tight, and may involve rolling your tyres on and off a kerb during the manoeuvre. For those who are precious about their cars, worth knowing. But it's a good location, easily accessed, close to the station and local hubs, and at a very good price! I'd use it again.
