How to get to your training venue at London - Russell Square

If you're not a Russell Square local, then using a train will help you get fairly close to your training venue at HQ - London, HQ Bloomsbury. There are a few stations located close to your venue, including:

Farringdon Train Station
Cowcross St, Farringdon, London EC1M 6BY

London Blackfriars
179 Queen Victoria St, London EC4V 4DY

King's Cross Train Station
Euston Rd, Kings Cross, London N1 9AL

We recommend you use Farringdon train station to get you to the training venue. Once you get off the train, you'll only need to cover one mile to get to the venue. If you'd like to take a bus to cover the distance, there are three different routes you can take. However, the fastest is by taking a bus at Stop G along Holborn Circus / Fetter Lane, which is a six-minute walk from the train station. Take bus number 8 going to Tottenham Court Road and alight at Stop Q on High Holborn. You'll then need to walk for another five minutes to reach the venue.

Other ways you can use to get to the venue from the train station include either taking a taxi or walking. If you take a taxi, the fastest route is by using Clerkenwell Rd, which will take 11 minutes. If you prefer walking, the single mile will only take about 20 minutes to cover. That whether you walk along A401 or A40.


If you'll be driving to your training venue, you'll need to find a reliable car park to keep your car since the venue doesn't have one. Some of the safe and affordable options within the area include:

Baynard House Car Park
Baynard House Car Park, 133 Queen Victoria St, London EC4V 4BQ

NCP London Garden Convent
Parker St, Holborn, London WC2B 5NT

NCP London Bloomsbury Square Car Park
30 Bloomsbury Square, Holborn, London WC1A 2RJ


Russell Square has an impressive Walk Score of 100/100. Whatever you need during your training, be it a place to eat or a park to relax, can all be found in plenty within walking distance of each other. You won't need a car to get around.


Travelling from far every day to attend your training sessions may become hectic in the long run. So, if you'd like to find hotels in the area, some places you can try include the Travelodge London Covent Garden at 10 Drury Ln, High Holborn, Holborn, London WC2B 5RE, the SoHostel at 91 Dean St, Soho, London W1D 3SY, or even The County Hotel at 8-11 Upper Woburn Pl, Bloomsbury, London WC1H 0JW. For more suggestions on where you can stay, check here.


Experience true British culture by ordering a meal from the Battersea Pie Station at Lower Ground Floor, 28 The Market, London WC2E 8RA, or Ben's Traditional Fish and Chips at 200 Shaftesbury Ave, West End, London WC2H 8JL. You can also try continental fast-food varieties by visiting the Taco Bell at 75 Southampton Row, Bloomsbury, London WC1B 4ET, or Taste of China at Holborn, London WC1B 4BB for oriental dishes.
