Parking spots with a view in London

There is a reason why so many city dwellers choose a smart for their everyday life. When you drive a smart parking is easy, flexible and effortless. London has thousands upon thousands of parking spaces, but with a smart you needn’t park just anywhere; you can park with a view. Here are just some of our favourites:

At the foot of London Eye

Situated on Addington Street you can see the London Eye located around the corner. It is a great parking spot to access the London Eye, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament and the London Dungeons.

Floristry at the heart

The car park at Brentford Gate to the north of Kew Gardens offers great views across Kew Gardens, The Pagoda, and St. Anne’s Church. There are some beautiful views on a summer’s day!

A shipping containers village

Head on over to the East and you will come across the famous BOXPARK in Shoreditch. The shopping village and eatery has become a hit with locals and tourists with its unique eco-efficient architecture. Just opposite is Chance Street where you can park up and go for a stroll around London’s hipster centre.

On the way to meet the Queen

Drive to St James’ Park and you will pass an array of tourist hotspots including Trafalgar Square and Hamleys on Regent Street. For easy access to the Queen’s iconic home, drive up The Mall to Buckingham Palace and you will find a car park on the left.

Views across London

Just north of Regent’s Park is the idyllic area of Primrose Hill. Parking on Regent Park Road and Chalcot Crescent provide great access to views across London from the top of the hill. The viewpoints provide a clear view of central London, as well as Hampstead and Belsize Park to the north.

The dome of London

The O2 at Greenwich peninsula in south-east London is a state-of-the-art arena which has hosted an array of artists, performers and events over the years. The car park situated at Lawn House Close on Isle of Dogs is the perfect parking spot for views across The Thames and the O2.
