Train/tube/coach services

The nearest tube station is Barkingside or Gants Hill or Fairlop, etc. depending on where you want to go. For more information see Transport for London for detailed journey planning and timetables.

The nearest train station is Ilford station right in the heart of Ilford. See National Rail for detailed journey planning and timetables.

The nearest coach service would be that run by National Express. I advise getting a coach to London (getting off at Golders Green or Victoria) and getting the tube here. They also have a Redbridge Roundabout drop off point which is quite convenient if you are not familiar with London, but it is quicker to use the Tube.

Bus services

Please see Transport for London or phone them on 020 7222 1234 (+442072221234 from abroad). London transport run the buses in this area.
