How to reach the Strand campus

Last revised 1 November 1996


The nearest underground station, now that Aldwych (which is still shown on some older maps) is closed, is Temple (Circle and District Lines, closed Sundays). Further afield, some ten minutes' walk or a short bus ride away, are Holborn (Central and Piccadilly Lines) to the north, Covent Garden (Piccadilly Line), Embankment (Circle, District, Bakerloo, and Northern) and Charing Cross (Bakerloo, Jubilee and Northern) to the west, and Blackfriars (Circle and District) to the east.


Large numbers of buses serve the Strand, Aldwych, Kingsway and Waterloo Bridge, including 1, 4, 6, 9, 11, 13, 15, 23, 26, 68 and X68, 76, 77a, 91, 168, 171, 171a, 176, 188, 501, 505 and 521.

(Full bus maps are available from the Transport for London Web Site.)

There are also many night buses. Note that westbound (towards Trafalgar Square) and southbound (towards Waterloo) buses stop right outside the gates, but because of the one-way system, eastbound (towards Fleet Street) and northbound (towards Holborn) buses stop in the Aldwych, apart from the single-decker "500" buses that use the Waterloo Bridge/Kingsway underpass.
