Parking outside London and catching tube in
I need to get to NW5 2QL on a weekday, and as there's no free parking in that area, I'd like to park in the outskirts and catch the tube in - assuming it's cheaper that way.
I'm coming from the other end of the M4 if that helps.
Thanks in advance!

I reckon your best bet would be to park around Ealing, Northfields or even parts of Acton (Northfields best for no parking permits) and then take the Piccadilly Line into central London, change at Leicester Square for the Northern Line for Kentish Town.
You'll spend a while on the tube, but it's much less hassle than driving across town to Kentish Town.
Alternatively, if you do want to drive, get off the M4 at the M25, follow this clockwise and get off at the M40 (J16), follow the M40 all the way into London. The M40 becomes the A40 then becomes the Marylebone Road (A501) in central London, this then becomes the Euston Road (still A501), then when you see the great big UCL Hospital on the right hand side, take a left (A400) to Camden Town, continue on this to Kentish Town.
Sounds ticky but it's a really straightforward route.
May be easier to tube it :-)

Wow.. thanks for the reply! Fast Eddie by name, Fast by posting!
It doesn't bother me driving into London, as I'll be using a Satnav.. it's the expensive parking fees that's putting me off.
So if it's cheaper by tube, tube it is!
