Hotels and Travel to Elstree Studios

56 posts in this topic

I managed to park in Tescos more or less all day. I did a brief 30 min break at the hotel around 12.30ish, so within the 4 hour limit I read about, although couldn't see any reg counter thing at that place, plus I parked elsewhere in the carpark on my return.

 

Strangely it seemed very different to what I was expecting, judging from the latest Google earth images..

 

Oh how I'd have loved to watch the reaction to the folks in Obi Wan costume etc as they possibly walked from the station through a Saturday crowd on the main street.. If you're coming in costume next time.. drive, or take it packed away in a case you'd be able to walk around with all day.. and change on-site..

 

That's interesting about parking at Tesco, although I wouldn't recommend anyone else try that as I have seen them patrol, but that may be mostly around Big Brother time when they have big "no BB parking" signs up.

I parked up at the Brook Street Car Park. £5 all day. Excellent place to park, less than 5 mins walk to Elstree. Would use this again

I stayed at the Ibis Hotel which came with free parking if you stayed.

Highly recommend this hotel as it's only 5mins walk from the studios

further to my brag about Tesco parking all day and not getting done... scrub that!

 

Wednesday, Mr Postie brought a lovely letter detailing my two sessions parked up, and noting that I'd overstayed both times..

 

Being a good customer, and it being first (and second) offence, they decided in their infinite generosity, not to levy a fine on this occasion..

 

Must remember next time...

oops, I did think they were fairly vigilant, thanks for letting us know for next time.
