Getting to The Peacock

Travel disruption

For the foreseeable future, there will be roadworks in Upper Street and Liverpool Road in Islington which will cause severe disruption to southbound traffic in this area.

This may affect your journey to Sadler’s Wells Theatre, The Peacock or the Lilian Baylis Studio.

The TFL website has more information on how your journey could be affected.

By Coach

If you are travelling by coach we would be grateful if you could take note of the following, and pass this information on to your coach driver:

  • There is a limited amount space for coaches to park on Kingsway and Portugal Street.
  • There are double yellow lines along most of the roads outside the theatre. Please ask your drivers not to park in the bus stop or on the double yellow lines as it causes a great deal of congestion.
  • We would also request that coach drivers switch their engines off when parked outside the theatre. We are keen to keep any kind of disturbance to our neighbours, particularly engine noise and pollution, to a minimum.
