7 Amazing Facts About London's Car Parks

How many of these facts did you know about London's car parks?

The Zidpark near Southwark Bridge was another such failed automatic car park of the 60s.

English Heritage listed the car park in 2002, describing it as an "important example of early motoring history".

A local newspaper subsequently published a map of Sutton's 'sauciest streets'.
