Default Leeds central parking wide enough for A8

Hi,

The very top floor of the Woodhouse Lane car park has wider than usual spaces; not designated family or (of course) disabled.

The top floor also attracts some nice motors, careful folks who park in the end bays and WAY over to one side at that!

BAD BIT. You have to work up 17 floors of fairly old fashioned concrete multi storey car park. I have done it in the A8 and followed a tasty C6 Avant today...

But maybe if you aren't used to the A8 you wouldn't want to drive up 17 floors to find the wider bays!

Robert

The car park in the Hilton Leeds has 3 or 4 nice sized spaces, but the car park was designed for a 1960s mini! D3 and D4 can be interesting, but regularly get stuck behind drivers of smaller cars on the ramps

Found a great space in Swindon, even for a LWB!

Hi,

Good tip but Saturdays are a different kettle of fish and I'm not sure about the St James for 3 Mon - Fri.

At the same time it is IMPOSSIBLE to say which option is best! Of course when you've chosen one option to park it must be very unusual to have the chance to check out the alternative option too!
