  • Do you have onsite parking

    Answered on 5 January 2020
  • Our Mercedes Gle may well be too wide for your private parking. If so is there alternative public parking close to you. Thank you very much.

    Hi, Yes there is a public car park 2 minutes away. I do reccommend trying to acess our private parking and putting in your mirrors! Many thanks, Jade
