How to get to the College

The College is situated at the north end of Freemasons Road, close to the A13 (opposite the Canning Town recreation ground).

Bus: Two buses stop close to the College on Freemasons Road - 241 (Canning Town - Stratford) and 325 (Beckton to Prince Regents Lane via East Ham and Forest Gate).

Car: Westbound (A13) - leave the A13 at the sign for the A112, cross Prince Regent Lane and continue in the left hand lane following the sign for Local Traffic. This will take you alongside the A13 and into Freemasons Road. Eastbound (A13) it is necessary to drive past Freemasons Road but at the junction with Prince Regent Lane turn right and right again onto the slip road. Rail/tube: The nearest station is Custom House on the Docklands Light Railway (by the ExCel Exhibition Centre). Take the opposite exit to ExCel (by the Quality Hotel), cross Victoria Dock Road by the traffic lights and walk up Freemasons Road (about 8 minutes walk). Alternatively you can get off the Jubilee Line at Canning Town cross Silvertown Way and walk up the slip road by the side of the flyover. You then walk along the A13 until you reach Freemasons Road (15 minutes walk).
