Where to park the carriage in London?

It's my first time posting to this board, mainly because I don't know enough about the Regency Period to know what to ask. I accept everything JA says without question, and what she doesn't say, I usually don't worry about.
But now I just thought of something. I was visiting a friend who lives in this old Colonial house in rural New England. She has a carriage house that now, of course, is a two-car garage, but it is a beautiful little building with a high ceiling. It made me think how much space you had to have to have a carriage and all. Then I went back to my tiny city apartment, where there's no place to park even a moped. So I'm wondering. Where did the Bingleys and all those folks put their carriages when they were in London? Did they have carriage houses in the city back then? Did you have to pay to house your carriage somewhere?
