Rapidly going that way in Edinburgh, and peak time Glasgow ain't a barrel of laughs either.The idea of driving in central London is nuts.
I used to work in Kings Cross area and was always surprised how many flash cars in N1 had rusty brakes from lack of use. Nuts!
But, for me, Edinburgh driving within say 2 miles of Waverley is for 1- 7.5 tonners, Blue lights, or taxis.
Or the clinically insane. Not driven into the stations areas for ten years. In any case I live literally 5 mins stroll from the hi-speed trains to both cities, making it pointless and we are in either in less than 25 minutes, with joint discount fares equating roughly to fuel costs & parking charges anyhow.
