I would like to park near to heathrow every weekend, has anyone found a good cheap deal, other than the numerous rip off merchants. Maybe even there's some free on road parking somewhere nearby?

Cheers

You should be OK parking in one of the "open access" company car parks on the South side of the A30 between Hatton Cross and the junction of the A30 with the A4, about ten minutes walk from Hatton Cross (which itself is one or two tube stops to the Heathrow terminal stations).

What time do they close in the evening?

They don't - that's what I meant by "open access": off-road parking areas surrounding office buildings. Provided you don't take the mick and park right next to the front entrance of a building, you should be safe for a couple of weeks tucked away in some unobtrusive spot round the back.

But I haven't worked round there for four or five years now, and things may have changed in that time, especially after all these terrorism capers and the general increase in regulation etc.

Near enough to get a cheap taxi to the airport. Want to do it on a weekly basis. Leaving Friday afternoon coming back to get car Monday am. Though of parking near some tube station as per owl, but not sure where I can get away with it.

Are you a contractor or a permie? Just have your driver drop you off outside the terminal, then meet you with the Aston on your return. What could be simpler?

I parked in Hounslow, um can't remember (probably West) station.

Was definately a better deal than inside the airport

I've done that occasionally. However, you might come back to find your car on bricks. There's some bad-ass kids who live round there.
