Default BRENT CROSS CAR PARKING info needed

I am travelling from The Midlands to London by car and then Tube to
Tottenham Court Road.

I want to leave my car away from City Centre and looking on AutoRoute, Brent
Cross area seems ideally placed. Does anyone know if there are any safe and
secure Car Parks around Brent Cross Underground?

Thanx
Jo

Brent Cross itself has no car park AFAIK and is in a residential area. It
is most likely to have restrictions during the daytime (to prevent the
commuters clogging local roads all day)

Thought of using Jct 4 from the M1? this provides easy access to both
Edgware and Stanmore stations at about 5 mins drive from the junction (and
very easy to navigate) ie Stanmore from jct 4 is simply follow slip road
down to main roundabout and turn right then stanmore is approx 1 mile on the
left (on same rd)
Depending on which part of TCR you require I would take the Jubilee/Met
(from Wembley Park) to Euston square. Its also a more "scenic" route in
general ;-)

And alternative would be Finchley Central - nice big car park there.

I would leave it in the Brent cross shopping mall car park (its free) and
then take a bus or walk to the tube (10 mins)

There are a very few parking spaces at the underground station (the
web page at http://tube.tfl.gov.uk/content/carpark/default.asp
suggests 26 spaces which would fill up quickly). There is a lot of
parking at the nearby shopping centre but I know that those car parks
are closed when the shopping centre is closed, and I don't know what
the attitude to leaving a car overnight - if that's your intention -
would be.

East Finchley tube station has a car park that rarely fills up
completely. It's pay and display and you can buy tickets for up to (I
think) 5 days.
