Transport Tips

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
We know that those of you traveling from outside of London might experience some adverse weather conditions, but here are some travel tips for once you get into the town centre.

AstroFest is held at the Kensington Town Hall, a short walk from High Street Kensington. The full address is Kensington Conference and Events Centre, The Town Hall, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Hornton Street, London W8 7NX.



By tube:

Take the Circle or District line to High Street Kensington. Walk out through the arcade onto Kensington High Street, cross the High Street and walk straight up Hornton Street. The venue is on the left hand side, less than 100 metres from the High Street. Don't forget that due to planned engineering works the Circle Line will be closed all weekend, along with closures between Embankment and Upminster on the District Line, so make sure to add a bit of extra time to your journey so you don't miss the start of any talks you've been looking forward to.

By bus:

Many buses serve the Town Hall. For bus routes 9, 10, 27, 28, 49, 328 and C1, alight at Kensington High Street/Wrights Lane Junction. Alternatively, routes 52 and 70 serve Kensington Church Street.

Car parking:

If you are driving, there is a public car park immediately below the Town Hall, with a capacity of 460 vehicles (expect to pay London parking rates though, and don't forget you'll need to pay Congestion Charge on Friday, too). To reach the car park enter Campden Hill Road from Kensington High Street. Turn first right into Phillimore Walk. Turn immediately left down the entrance ramp to the car park. Additional public car parks are also available at the Royal Garden Hotel (Kensington High Street) and in Young Street.
