Sadler's Wells Theatre & the Lilian Baylis Studio
London EC1R 4TN
Sadler’s Wells is committed to minimising the environmental impacts of its operations, and we hope you will join us in our aims to improve sustainability when you plan your journey to all our venues.
We are very well served by public transport, with tubes and trains nearby, buses stopping outside, and cycle routes and parking all around. Full details are below.
Numbers 19, 38 and 341 travel from the West End to the theatre's own bus stop. Many buses travel from Waterloo, Liverpool Street, Euston and Kings Cross stations to the Angel.
Angel (Northern Line City Branch) is a 250-metre walk from Sadler's Wells. Trains run every few minutes northbound to Kings Cross and Euston, and southbound to Bank and London Bridge. For up to date Tube information or to plan your journey, visit Journey Planner.
There are plenty of bike racks outside and opposite the theatre. There are several Barclays Cycle Hire stations within 5 minutes walk.
There are no turns into St. John St from Pentonville, City and Goswell Roads. The easiest route is from Pentonville Road into the west side of Claremont Square and down Amwell Street.
Sadler's Wells, the Lilian Baylis Studio and the Peacock Theatre are all inside the congestion charge zone. If you want to drive in the congestion charge zone between 7am - 6.00pm Monday to Friday, excluding Public Holidays, you will have to pay the £10.00 charge. There are some exemptions and discounts.
