If you are travelling to the RBS Matinee...Northern Line closure

Recommended Posts

Thanks Lynette not so much for the matinee as was planning on bus-ing that (staying nr Angel) but this could be a prob for me on the Saturday as I'm up inLondon on a ballet course near Old Street tube and was planning doing London Bridge to Old street via the Northern Line!! So this is very useful to know....can use Victoria Line to Kings Cross and bus it from there but will leave me slightly short of time that way....may have to get the train from Brighton even earlier :wacko:


Actually this info could be useful for any others doing Franziska Rosenzweig's sat course near Old Street as the northern line is the obvious one for that.

There is a no. 55 bus from central London (think it finishes /starts Oxford Street and goes in a more or less straight line to Old street and beyond.....not sure of destination east of that) which almost drops at door of the studio being used.

The 43 bus from London Bridge also goes pretty close....get off stop past Old Street and walk down Leonard Street then Charlotte street....not as quick as tube though :(

Meant to say as 43 coming from the other direction it will be the stop just before Old Street tube then cross over the road....think there's a Pret on corner and that's where Leonard Street starts.


Looking at all those road closures feel lucky to be going from the north direction down to ROH!!
