New research by online parking portal YourParkingSpace.co.uk has revealed that just a few minutes’ walk can drastically slash the cost of city centre parking.
The comparison of four major UK cities shows that motorists happy to walk anything from just six minutes’ can make huge savings when booking with YourParkingSpace.co.uk
In London, for instance, an all-day stay at a car park in Tottenham Court Road costs an eye-watering £45.00, whereas booking a location with YourParkingSpace.co.uk near to trendy Soho and just 14 minutes’ walk away from the dead centre of London costs as little as £13.50.
This would save savvy motorists a massive £31.50, or the equivalent of £2.25 for each minute walked to the heart of the capital, plus give them the chance to take in some world-famous sights along the way.
Harrison Woods, managing director at YourParkingSpace.co.uk, said: “By booking ahead with YourParkingSpace.co.uk motorists don’t have to put up with expensive city centre parking.
Besides, a few minutes’ stroll is also a great way to get some exercise and see the sights!”
