    which tube station would be best to park at for Hairspray (covent garden)

    we are going to see Hairspray on saturday, travelling from Fleet
    but we want to park at a tube station as we will spend the day hopping on and off the tube..
    but want to be within half hour tube ride from shaftsbury theatre as we have 2 kids in tow!! and the show won't finish til 10.30ish.
    any help would be appreciated..
    cheers jo

    There is a NCP at Hairspray Shaftsbury Avenue theatre. However its 1.50 per 15 mins i believe but has an upward limit of £30 summin quid, Then you are right next to Holborn tube station which gives you plenty of access to the London tube network.

    t[COLOR="Purple"]hanks for that, but then we would have to add congestion charge, was trying to do it cheaper..
    thanks again[/COLOR]

    Park at Fleet station, catch the train in and help to keep me employed:p Wimbledon or Richmond are worth considering, you can use a travelcard to get into London using the main line trains from both:)

    can i park at wimbledon or richmond Both have car parks, but not sure what time they fill up by??

    how do i get a travelcard? Buy it at any station, you could buy one at Fleet that includes your entire journey if you choose to use the train.

    how long would it take to get back to fleet if we parked there? Richmond to fleet... I would drive it in 30-40 mins M3/A316. Wimbledon about the same, just cut across to the A3:)

    If you are going on a saturday then you wont need to pay congestion charge

    Tube, bus + train within the zones:)

    Cheapest option is use an oyster card if you know anyone who could lend you one, saves you some pennies.
