Omnibus Theatre is only a 20-minute journey from Central London. The closest tube station is Clapham Common station (Northern Line), which is a short 5-minute walk from our building.
After exiting the Tube station barriers, keep right and head up the stairs, taking the right-hand exit marked “Clapham High Street/The Pavement/Old Town/Buses”. You will exit the station onto a street called The Pavement and you should see a Little Waitrose on the opposite side of the road. Turn left out of the station and follow The Pavement, keeping the Common on your left. Once you have passed Holy Trinity Church, Omnibus Theatre is straight ahead on the corner of Clapham Common Northside and Orlando Road (opposite the Starbucks).
We are a 10-15 minute walk from either Wandsworth Road or Clapham High Street Overground Stations. From Clapham High Street, you can also take bus routes 50, 88, 155 or 345 to Clapham Common tube station and walk from there.
The following bus routes stop very close to our venue:
88 and 417: Omnibus Clapham (final stop – right outside our doors!)
249: Clapham Common Old Town (final stop)
137: Clapham Common Old Town (Stop W)
322: The Pavement (final stop – turn left after alighting and walk back – the building will be straight ahead)
In addition, the following bus routes stop outside Clapham Common tube station: 35, 37, 50, 155, 345, 690
BY NATIONAL RAIL
The travel time from East Croydon is around 30 minutes. Change at Balham for the Northern Line (northbound) and it’s two stops to Clapham Common.
There is little on-street parking available in the surrounding area. There are a limited number of free parking spaces after 6.30pm alongside the common (Northside / B303, and The Pavement). Before 6.30pm these spaces are expensive pay-and-display.
Please allow plenty of time if you are driving, and park carefully to avoid the wrath of the traffic wardens. Different roads have different restrictions, sometimes in adjoining bays!
More information on routes and timetables can be found at Transport for London and information about parking can be found at Lambeth Council website (on the ‘Lambeth CPZ Map’ we are in grid reference M2, at the top of the square).
