Easy to get to by public transport, The City College is located on the edge of the trendy Hoxton and Shoreditch areas of London which have vibrant arts and entertainment districts with great places to eat, art galleries and bars. The Old Street area itself has recently been nicknamed “Silicon Roundabout’ and is a rapidly expanding centre for new companies specializing in computing, gaming, mobile apps and design.

How to get to The City College:
By London Underground and Overground trains:
Once you arrive at Old Street station, please follow signs to Subway 4/Exit 4, then walk forwards along City Road (where you can see two very tall buildings, the Atlas building and the M by Montcalm, which is a very angular triangle-shaped building, in front). After approximately 80 yards, at the traffic lights, take the right fork into East Road, walking along the right-hand side of the Atlas building. Keep walking for another 200 yards, and you will find The City College on your left.
If you are close by, you may wish to walk to the College. If you would prefer to ride a bike, there are Santander cycles for hire opposite the College building. If you are riding your own bike, you can use Cycle Street for locations to secure you bike.
