Slightly off-topic i know, not sure which thread to post this under so I thought a new one.....

Can anyone advise me (from previous experience) what the parking situation is like near the Astoria?

Coming from Leics I usually park at Stanmore train station and then get the train/tube into London.

Looking at the mean fiddler website it does state there is a cark park nearby but does not mention the capacity/price, can any1 advise me if it's worth it or maybe stick to what I'm used to and get the train in....?

Thanks

No chance of them paying me Jon. I did some consultancy work for them many years ago advising them on the set-up of an IT helpdesk. I got the gig through an agency and the agency didn't prepare the paperwork correctly. London Underground found a loophole and refused to pay for the work. The agency subsequently refused to pay me. A solicitor advised me not to pursue the agency, as his fee would ultimately be higher than the 4k that was owed me. You learn the hard way! :(
