Do you have a train to catch? But do you have to leave your car somewhere? Looks like it’s your lucky day: ParkingsdeParis offers you a dozen car parks around Gare du Nord train station.
Think about it! Car parks that are secure, open 24 hours, have covered parking, are accessible for people with disabilities… We’ve got it all! You’ll find everything you need, and maybe even a few extras you didn’t think you needed, like car parks that wash your car or have valet parking. Like we said, we’ve got everything. ;)
And frankly, you’re going to need a car park because trying to park near Gare du Nord is no small feat. Gare du Nord is in Paris, after all, and parking in Paris… Well, it’s certainly not as sweet as the macaron you’re going to deserve after attempting it!
And something typical you’ll notice near train stations; everyone is always in a hurry! On top of that, someone had the brilliant idea to place the Gare de l'Est station right next to the Gare du Nord station. So, as you can imagine, street parking spaces are scarce, and we haven’t even talked about the limits in residential areas yet… A maximum of 2 hours and usually it costs 4€ per hour!
Don’t waste your precious time looking for parking, with ParkingsdeParis you can reserve your parking space ahead of time to ensure you park at the best rate while saving time. It's almost crazy how well thought out it is, right? ;)
Let us tell you a little about the Paris Gare du Nord station so you understand how vital it is to book your parking space ahead of time.
The station building itself is listed as a historic monument, so count on some tourists mixed in with all the travelers. Yes, those people who stop in the middle of everything to take a selfie. And, what’s more, some of them come by car, so that leaves even less parking for others. So now you understand why it’s useful to book parking in advance!
Is your train late? Or have you arrived even earlier than you expected since you parked in an affordable car park in minutes? These things happen when you book with ParkingsdeParis. ;)
Either way, you won’t be bored since Gare du Nord is a huge station with several lounges and waiting rooms. But if you want to take full advantage of your extra time, you have options!
If you’re on a business trip, you can use the co-working space available at Gare du Nord.
If you’re savvy when it comes to saving battery, you’ll find two charging stations to top up your phone or tablet battery. One is on level 0, facing track 16, and the other is on level -2 in the Maubeuge waiting room. Enjoy, the wifi is free too!
Do you know how to play the piano? If the answer is yes, head over to the two self-service pianos that are free for passing travelers to use. One is on level 0, off track 13, and the other is on level -2, near the charging station. And even if the answer is no, what better time than the present to try? ;) You’ll likely never see your audience again, so don’t hold back!
Upon your return, you can even get your photos developed at the station! So you can head home with your vacation pictures ready, if you’re one of those people that still shoots with film, that is.
Finally, if you’re hungry, take advantage of the many dining options and grab a bite to eat. If you’re a chocolate lover (who isn’t?), be sure to check out the chocolate shops at Gare du Nord. In case you’d forgotten, there are trains that leave this station and go straight to Belgium. ;)
