Travelling to King’s College London

 

Here’s the address:

King’s College London, Strand, London WC2R 2LS

It’s at the Aldwych end of the Strand (not the Trafalgar Square end).  Nearest stations are Temple, Charing Cross, Waterloo, Covent Garden and Holborn.  Other options and a detailed journey planner can be accessed at the Transport for London website (http://www.tfl.gov.uk). The easiest and cheapest way of paying for travel in London is by obtaining an Oyster card; you can obtain one in advance of the day through this website: http://visitorshop.tfl.gov.uk/.

There are also detailed directions on this website: http://www.kcl.ac.uk/.

The entrance to the College is directly on the Strand and there will be someone there to show you the way to the Chapel.  The Great Hall is just below the Chapel in the same building.

As we indicated in the general information, driving to the College is not ideal.  However, if you do want to drive, there are some (expensive!) parking options nearby – although these do tend to fill up quickly on a Saturday.  You should expect to pay upwards of thirty pounds for a day’s parking in central London.  A good website showing parking options near to the College is available here: http://en.parkopedia.co.uk/parking/wc2r_2ls/

If you’re coming by taxi we suggest you ask for ‘King’s College London on the Strand’ as the College has other sites around London.

Here’s a map (marked Strand Campus):
