    Parking at Three Bridges station


    0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
    Anyone know how much a days parking is at Three Bridges station? Going away and don't want to come back all the way to Hove to collect the car after working in London. Alternatively any other suggestions for parking close to a direct line into London?

    Purley (Horsham line) and Riddlesdown (East Grinstead line) stations both have regular quick services to London Victoria and both have free parking nearby. For Purley you want to go down the Godstone Road (A22) and park somewhere like Sunnydene Road for free parking. Or you can pay to park in the station car park or the town centre multi storey car park (I think it's cheaper) for ~£4 for a whole day. All the streets around Riddlesdown are free parking.

    ..but no Brighton ever stops there, I'm assuming that Il Duce means that Horsham trains do.

    On a related topic, does anyone know whether there are spaces for a bike at Three Bridges or Balcombe. I fancy a bit of a cycle ride next time I go to London and am looking for a station to park the bike - I know HH has bike racks but where else?

    Spaces at Three Bridges are at a premium. The nearest car park is reserved before 9am for season ticket holders so you have to use the bottom car park. This usually gets full and pretty quickly, also if its been raining its a nightmare as floods easily and you have to wade through puddles to get to the car!!!!

    Haywards Heath is a better option, but that location might be no good for you. Similarly Balcombe is also better but fewer trains stop there.

    Perhaps better to park in Gatwick long-term car park - just one stop further down the line?

    You're a clever ****ing dick aren't you? If you're at Victoria looking for a train to Purley, you're not going to find much heading down to Brighton. It's the Horsham trains that stop there. Is that ok?

    Horley has a big car park right next to the station that has been pretty empty the few times I've used it. Can't remember how much it was, but I think it was the "normal" £3 - £4 range for the day.

    Recently, I've used the Gatwick long stay car park a few times. £9 for the day, or a little less if you pre-book.

    I've also street parked around Three Bridges when going to Crawley games, but there's not usually a great many options too close to the station, though I never failed to find somewhere.
