Travel

By Car

Use your SatNav or Google Maps. We should warn you that driving in central London is not fast and not fun. Parking at the venue is £20.

By Train

The TFL website is the official website for the public transport – you’ll find information on underground and bus services.
If you are on the underground, travel to Canary Wharf Station, which is on the Jubilee line. This is a 5-minute walk from the venue (see route on map above)
You can also use the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) which can take you even nearer to the venue with South Quays and Heron Quays stations. Canary Wharf DLR station is actually a bit further away so use either of the other two.
If you don’t have an oyster card and want to travel on the underground/DLR the cheapest option for a couple of journeys a day will be a visitor’s oyster card. Otherwise you can get a one-day travelcard or buy single tickets at the machines.

By Plane

There are many airports classed as “London”.
The most convenient for you will be London City Airport, but you’d be lucky to fly there as it’s mostly non-commercial/expensive. Go there if you can though as you’ll be under 30 minutes from the venue.
The following are approximate times by public transport from the other airports
Gatwick 1:10
Stansted 1:15
Southend 1:15
Heathrow 1:20
Luton 1:30

By Taxi

We recommend that you use Uber instead of the normal black cabs that you can hail on the street as it’s usually much cheaper. Taxis are generally not a cheap or fast way of getting around though.

If you need help with travel arrangements, please don’t hesitate to contact us at ukcubeassociation@gmail.com or personally via any means you know of.

Accommodation

There are a lot of hotels near the venue (including the venue itself), but most of the them are pricey. If you can’t find anywhere suitable near the venue you can always stay somewhere connected to the Jubilee or DLR lines, as the venue is very near stations (see Travel).

We recommend that you book as early as possible as it’s a popular area and it’s peak London tourist time. Search on Google Maps/booking.com/hotels.com or whatever you prefer.
