Transport in London

So, what are the travel Zones? 

Public transport in London is often referred to as being in certain Zones, London is split into 9 travel Zones, with Zone 1 being Central London, Zone 2 the ring around Zone 1 and so on. So Zone 9 is greater London, where as Zone 1 and 2 are pretty central.

The closest station to our largest campus is Mile End, it's in Zone 2 as is our campus in Whitechapel; you can get to both the Whitechapel and Mile End campus on the Hammersmith and City Line as well as the District Line.

Mile End station also has the Central Line, which goes straight to London landmarks like St.Paul's and Oxford Street!

Our other campuses are located in Zone 1, the nearest tube to Charterhouse Square and West Smithfield is Barbican and Holborn is the closest station to Lincoln's Inn Fields.
