Driving to TweetCamp

If you’re coming to TweetCamp by car, then plan to spend between £10 and £12 pound for parking. Less if you plan on staying less than the full event.

ParadiseHaving scouted out the area, the best value in parking comes from the Paradise Road, Multi-Storey Car Park.

I took a few pics, of the car park, though unfortunately at night, but it’s clearly signposted as you come into Richmond, and just head for the Town Centre.

It should be ok to park your car in there all day, from as early as 7.30am.  Just make sure that you leave the Car Park before midnight, which, if you’re driving, probably shouldn’t be too much of a problem 😉

The cost of parking is £7.50 for 6 hours, £10 for upto 9 hours, and £12 for over 9 hours.  It’s also just a short walk from Gumtree’s Offices, in Whittaker House, on Whittaker Avenue.

Once you’ve parked here, just come back onto the main road, and keep walking down this road, and just follow it all the way down, to the Odeon cinema, where the road will split into a T-Junction.  Take the left fork, (you should be directly opposite the Wagamama’s and have Waterstones on your left, and then walk down the main road, on the left (it’s a good idea to cross over to the other side, at the traffic lights.  And then on your right hand side, straight after the All Bar One, you should be on Whittaker Avenue.  Turn right down here, and then walk to the end of the road, and you’ll find Gumtree’s Offices, the last ‘Office’ Building, on the right, as the square ends.

Hope that helps, with finding your way here.  And if you know of any cheaper parking, that you can use all day, then do let the rest of us know 😉 Otherwise, I’m guessing most folks driving in will prefer the convenience of one car park, where they can just leave their car, rather than having to leave to move it every two hours 😉  If you happen to only be coming for two hours, or want to move your car closer to the venue there is a Basement NCP car park directly opposite Whittaker House, which is open for public use.  The only downside with it, is that you can only park in there for upto 2 hours at a time, until 6.30pm.  After 6.30pm, it’s a fixed price, for the rest of the evening.

Hope that helps, and isn’t up here too late for you to make use of.  See you soon!
