Default Parking at Cockfosters

Can anyone help with a few questions regarding parking at Cockfosters
tube station? I'll be arriving at the station about 4.30pm on a Friday
hoping to return by midnight. I'm off to a concert in Hyde Park.

1. Will I be able to find a space?
2. What are the charges?
3. Is there a time restriction for exit on my return?
4. Or should I not bother and try and park near the venue?

Any advice/suggestions most appreciated.

Thanks,
Simon

I don't know how suitable Cockfosters is for parking, but driving into
London is a seriously bad idea.

There are many quiet streets near the station, which *probably* have parking
banned for only 1 hour in the middle of the day.

4. Or should I not bother and try and park near the venue?


That is a *really* bad idea!

after 1.30pm you can park in the adjacent roads free. the CPZ is a standard
Mid day retriction to stop commuters using them a day parking

Where are you driving from? It may be quicker to get the train from
your nearest city?

e.g. Peterborough - Kings Cross - Hyde Park Corner = 44mins + 2 min
walk + 14 mins tube

vs

Cockfosters - Hyde Park Corner = 40 minutes

Getting back might be a problem; some last trains are rather early.

I'm visting friends nearby that day so Cockfosters seemed to make most
sense.

Anyway, thank you all for your input.

If your friends are in the London Borough of Barnet, ask them for a
visitor's parking permit. (I think they cost about 35p) Then you can
park there all day...
