The highway code.....

Are you saying, Guy, that it is LEGAL to park facing either direction in the UK?

It was when I was last there (1997?), but always get a local to advise as rules change and may be different from area to area.

I'm wondering whether we should just get a manual of traffic rules?

A starter is here.... http://www.visitbritain.com/en/Transport/Getting-around-Britain/Driving-regulations-in-Britain.htm and the real deal seems to be here but have yet to read all the links https://www.gov.uk/browse/driving/highway-code and 239 says in part "do not park facing against the traffic flow" so my memory of what happens needs to be modified by reading the actual rules.

Anyway, UK is easy for us Aussies as we both drive on the correct side of the road.

Regards...... Guy
