Hope this is correct forum

 

We are planning a trip on a weekday soon to the V&A Museum in Kensington. I am slightly confused about the boundary of the CC. TfL's map show the zone as Hyde Park -ish, but I seem to recall that the road is marked with a "C" just over the junction of the A4 and Earls Court Road

 

Any thoughts please?

Hello there.

 

Are you asking because you'll be travelling by car? If you will be, I think this might be one for the parking forum guys. Here is about public transport.

 

Of course you might be asking a different question. :)

 

Edit: I forgot the parking forums had changed, haven't been there for a few weeks. You might need a read around, but I do remember questions cropping up about the CC. Maybe the local authority one?

 

My best, HB

Don't forget that Boris reduced the area of the CC zone. Earls Court was in the 'old' (and larger) zone - but not now.

Why not park on the outskirts and the Boris Bike the rest (doing a wheelie all the way) :)

Slightly confused

 

We are planning a trip on a weekday to V& A Kensington

 

According to TfL map this and immediate roads are not in CCZ, but I recall seeing a big C on the road and signs just over the A4 -Earls Court road junction

 

Any clarification gratefully received

I think your recollection must be from around or before Christmas 2010. Earls Court was the start of the 'Western Extention' that was scrapped from 4 January 2011. But as the last day of charge was 24 December 2010 but signs and road markings may have remained in place a few days longer.

 

The current zone is here http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/roadusers/congestioncharge/whereandwhen/

The V&A is outside the zone, on the left edge of tyhe map.

 

Parking might be another matter though!

 

 

 

EDIT. Sorry to duplicate you, Michael.

I was distracted between completing my post and sending it.

Parking around there is a nightmare you would probably be better off catching the tube.

Many thanks for guidance,we will probably do as G & M suggests, park out Park Royal area and tube in I was forgetting the horrible parking and cost in Exhibition road, I usually "do" it with an LGV to loading bays !

park out Park Royal area and tube in

 

There are parking restrictions in that area too, due to many like minded people as yourself.

 

You will find car parks at stations further out such as West Ruislip (Central Line), Hillingdon & Ickenham (both on Metropolitan & Piccadilly Lines), all within minutes of M40/M25. But they too fill up fast.
