How to get to Royal Drawing School Shoreditch

Charlotte Road is a narrow street with three/four storey Victorian warehouses on each side (it is one way, north to south). The School is marked on the outside of the building along with our other sister charities including The Prince’s Foundation for the Built Environment. 

Tube

The nearest underground station is Old Street (Northern Line City Branch). Leave the Station by exit 2 on to Old Street south side. The School is a five-minute walk away. The school is a ten-minute walk or a five-minute taxi or bus ride from Liverpool Street (Central, District, Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith and City lines).

Train
The nearest mainline station is Liverpool Street. Kings Cross and Euston are 2 and 3 stops away on Northern line. There are also overland trains to Old Street and Moorgate, both within walking distance.

Bus
26, 35, 48, 149 and 242 run along Shoreditch High Street. Buses 43, 76, 141, 214 and 271 run along City Road south of Old Street. Buses 55 and 243 run along Old Street.

Bicycle

There are no places for bicycle parking immediately outside the building. There are racks further up Charlotte Rd, on Old Street, the top of Curtain Road and people also use Hoxton Square. It is advisable not to leave anything easily detachable or overnight. There are Barclays Cycle Hire docking stations on Shoreditch High Street at the corner of Rivington Street.

Car or taxi

Car parking is extremely limited, but there is a car park behind the Foundry bar at the Old Street end of Rivington Street which is open from 7am – 6.30pm and costs £7/day and an NCP car park on Great Eastern Street. After 5.30pm and on Saturdays street parking is free off Shoreditch High Street near Arnold Circus (not visible on map above). It is easy to flag a taxi at either end of Charlotte Road throughout the day and in the evening.
