Fulham Car and Tube

Anyone got any idea where i can park on the outskirts of London for a reasonable price,
and jump onto the tube that would take me to Putney Bridge.

I'm taking my old chap (he's 78) for a day out and don't want to be hanging around Euston,
New St stations for any length of time waiting for trains.
hence the reason for driving down.

PS this will be the 1st time Dad has watched a Blues v Fulham match since hrrrrr ummmm Since that night :(

Straight down the M40 to its end and park at Hillingdon station . Leave car all day for £2.30 ( maybe £1.70 .. can't remember , ''twas a fortnight ago ) . Jump on Tube , use your contactless bank card and travel into central London for a maximum of £12 , using as many tubes as you want all day . Takes an hour into central London .

Easiest would be M40 then A40 to Hanger Lane and find free parking round there. Im sure there would be some.

Then central line a few stops to notting hill gate, change to district down to putney bridge. Tube bit should take 45 mins

Park at Stanmore, it's at the end of the Jubilee line and about a mile from junc 3 of the M1. Big car park should be plenty of room, if not the locals alongside the car park entrance hire out their drives for £10 all day.

Hi Mr B.

I live in London me, so you’ve struck lucky with this question.

Coming down to ‘old Smokey’ can seem a bit daunting, but honestly, if you follow my instructions you should be okay.

First of all you will need to drive to London. If you’re not a member of a reputable motoring organisation it will probably be best to avoid the motorway; breakdowns can turn out to be expensive. Make all the usual checks, oil, fuel, water, tyre pressures etc. Also, remember to have an up-to-date road atlas with you.

When you arrive in London you will need to find an underground railway station. There are plenty of these scattered about but if you don’t see one you can always ask a friendly local where the nearest one is. From there it’s easy. Park in front of the station and get on a train and go to Fulham.

I think that’s it really. It’s going to be cold so you won’t want to expose the old chap longer than necessary.

Agar Grove, Camden. Residents' parking is free to all at weekends. 10-15 minutes walk from Camden station depending on which end of the Grove you manage to find a space.

If you're lucky, the Agar estate's gangs may not steal or set light to it so you'll get home ok too.

2 hours from Brum.

Bubble,

Get the M40 down to Uxbridge, get off at J1 M40 /A40 head down the Oxford road into Uxbridge (2 mins) there is a pub on the left called the Swan & Bottle, park in there and walk up the High Street to the tube station (few mins) take the Piccadilly Line through to Earls Court (40 mins) and take the District to Putney Bridge. Alternatively get off at Hammersmith and catch a bus or cab up Fulham Palace Road which will take you closer to the ground, loads of pubs for a pint & grub in Hammersmith.

Maybe so but Fulham is a good day out for brummies. I hope the daft drunken f*cker who decided to jump in the Thames for a swim after the game last year does so again this time round. Think he was celebrating our 0-1. Would like to see both again.

Done this route a few times, Wembley being one, huge carpark, dirt cheap, and best of all....a pub on the station!!!

Here’s fact I think I read somewhere, Fulham’s sub v West Ham in 75 was also Sunderland’s sub v LEEDS in 73!
Must check that out
