farnborough airport parking Farnborough airport, located 35 miles south-east of London and servicing many business aircraft, is also home to the world-famous Farnborough International Airshow, held every two years to crowds of over 250,000. Farnborough has a rich military history as an aircraft factory during the first World War, and then a research center, but now exists as one of Europe’s premier executive and business aviation centers. This article will function as your guide to parking and general transportation to and from the Farnborough airport to make your travels easier and more enjoyable.

First of all, to get to the airport from London, hop on the M3 heading south. From the M3, take the A327 exit at Ively road or from the A331 take the A3011 towards Farnborough, then the A325 to the Pinehouse roundabout. From the first roundabout, turn left and follow the road across another roundabout until you reach the airport. You should pick up signs for the airport from the A331 or the A327.

Once you reach the vicinity of the airport, you should realize that there is no parking directly at the facility but rather a collection of car parks all located within a mile of the airport. The biggest of these is Princes Mead car park with 915 spaces and Kingmead with 649 spaces. Smaller car parks include Farnborough Station with 470 places and a prime location to the airport, or Pinehurst with 294 spaces. Nearly all of the car parks can be accessed by driving down Farnborough Road, going through the Pinehurst and Sulzer roundabouts, or driving north of Meudon Avenue towards the railway station.

It should be noted that some of these car parks use the “pay and display” payment method and are only payable on a daily basis, while others have long-term parking with more manageable long-term fees.

As an alternative to driving to the airport and having to deal with the parking situation at all, other options include taking the bus or taking the train and then taking a taxi to the airport. One bus option is the Stagecoach Number 2 bus that runs from Camberley to Farnborough. Another option is to take the Countrywide Number 73 bus from Church Crookham Countrywide to Farnborough. The airport site is situated close to the bus stop on the Farnborough road opposite Farnborough College of Technology, about a 15 minute walk away.

If taking the train, it is about a 45 minute ride from the London Waterloo station to the Farnborough Main Station. From the train station, it is either a 20 minute walk to the airport or a 5 minute taxi ride, both of which can be done with minimum cost and none of the hassle of parking.

Taking public transportation is easy and cheap, but if you still insist on driving, this article has shown that there are plentiful parking options available close to the Farnborough airport. Just follow the directions and you’ll be quickly and safely on your way in no time.
