Please can someone offer some advice. Looking to travel to London from Derby this Sunday (24th August 2014) to see the sites (Buckingham Palace, Oxford St...etc... We will be leaving early on Sunday. Needed advice on Parking somewhere close to Central London as we will have children with us.

Might even consider booking into a hotel if someone could offer real advice through there own experience.

Please bear in mind that there will be much traffic disruption in North / West London due to Notting Hill Carnival over the weekend. There are other posts about places to park and then get the tube but personally I would say don't drive unless you stay on the outskirts and tube into town.

you can park from free in Marylebone e.g. Harley Street on Sundays. I would not consider Oxford Street a 'sight' worth seeing.

Not really sure what you are asking for here. Plenty of people have experience of staying in hotels in London but real advice about what? If you want suggestions for places to stay, then some idea of budget would be needed. Do you want to stay overnight Saturday night or Sunday night?
