Why can't I pre-book parking?

With the closure of Colindale station until December 2024, we anticipated increased use of our car park. While the station is closed, parking will operate on a first come, first served basis.  For coaches and vehicles larger than 10 seats, park as normal and to give your registration at the Admissions desk upon arrival.
