Travelling to eurobest

Your guide to the easiest ways of getting to, from and around London during eurobest.

Getting to London

London is home to six international airports – Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton, London City and Southend - and there are loads of options to get you into the city centre once you’ve touched down.

Express trains run every 15 minutes from Gatwick, Heathrow and Stansted airports into either Victoria or Paddington stations and take just 30 minutes. And if you've flown in to one of the others, a range of National Rail services, coaches and underground rail travel have you covered.

Getting around London

By tube

For most people, using contactless or topping up a reusable Oyster card are the most flexible, stress-free and cheapest options for pay-as-you-go travel in London. You can buy a one or seven-day Travelcard too, which lets you travel as often as you like by bus or tube.

By bus

Like the tube, you can use a contactless, a topped-up Oyster card or Travelcard on London's buses. They're generally less hectic than tube trains, but expect a slightly slower journey.

By foot

Just moving a few stops by tube or bus? It's sometimes easier to ditch public transport and walk. Travelling from Leicester Square to Covent Garden, for example, only takes four minutes - but loads of people take the longer tube journey instead.

Getting to eurobest

The festival's Bloomsbury home is only a five-minute walk from both Holborn and Russell Square underground stations, and a 15 to 20-minute walk or 10-minute bus journey from Euston, King's Cross and St Pancras stations.
