Parking space on sale for 100k


A parking space in an "exclusive" complex behind Harrods has gone on sale - for drivers with 100,000 to spare.
The space in the secure parking area in Knightsbridge, west London is both "prestigious" and "fully facilitated" says Harrods Estates.

And its price has shot up since the 56 spaces were put on the market at 80,000 each last year.

But it is only open to people living within 400m of the spaces, which are available to rent at 5,000 a year.

The price does not appear to be putting people off - a Harrods Estates spokesman said there was a waiting list for spaces.

What does it cost to park in a pay for parking lot over there, or in a parking garage?

Central London is a toll zone. Just driving through costs you money. You cannot park ANYWHERE in London.
Most streets are one-way traffic. You can drive around in circles all day. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
An hour in a parking lot will cost at least $10. Probably more.

If you live within 400 yards of Harrods, money is not an issue.
