I went to see the Lion King on Sunday and after searching the internet for places to park, I came across the City of Westminster Theatreland parking website and noticed that they are offering a special deal for theatre-goers - 50% of all parking!
I drove in to London from Andover (it took me about and hour and 15 mins) and parked in the China Town car park, a short walk from Leicester Square, Piccadilly and Covent Garden, centrally located to numerous theatres.
I arrived at 12 noon and left at 11pm and the parking cost me just £14.50!
