It is possible to get a bus for one stop across the road from the Underground Station, to near the office, as this avoids a section of pavement which is unmarked shared use with cyclists. Both walking and using the bus are described in detail below.

Directions, if walking from Elephant and Castle station (0.7km – just under half a mile)

Exit the station using the Shopping Centre exit (not Imperial War Museum exit).

Turn right and walk along the side of the Underground building for 16 metres. As you round the corner there is a ramp down to the right. Bear left to avoid this and continue along the road with the black railing to your right.

Continue to follow the railing as it bends round to the right until you meet a tactile paving band. Use the pedestrian crossing (with cone)  to cross the road.

Once across, turn right onto New Kent Road following the railings on your left, which is separated with red brick pillars.

Go under the railway bridge and pass the bus stop on your right. Be aware that there is a phone box just under the railway bridge on your left. Walk past the Post Office on your left and then a second bus stop on the left.

Cross Meadow Road. Be aware that the pavement after this point is shared with cyclists. There is no separate cycle lane.

Carry on walking crossing Falmouth Road. You then come to a grassy area on your left-hand side which bends to the right. Staying on the main pavement, walk past another bus stop on the right.

Cross Harper Road and turn sharp left, walking along the side of Tesco until you reach the turning (after 46 metres) right into County Street. Our office is at no. 81 in the green tiled buildings (around 90 metres along the street on the right-hand side). We are behind a glass sliding door marked with the VocalEyes and Stagetext logos.

There is a buzzer attached to the silver post box to the right of the glass door.
