If you’re going to spend some time in London buy an Oyster card (costs £3) and put some money on that, and it should only cost you about £2.50 to get to Kings Cross. It’s the easiest way to pay for London public transport and you can get your £3 deposit back when you leave!

Hi guys,

Here are a few directions to help you get to the Clink hostel on your arrival.

From London Airports:
Heathrow Airport is connected to the entire Greater London area by the capital’s underground railway network. From passport control and baggage reclaim follow the “Underground” signs to the underground station. Take the Piccadilly Line (colour coded dark blue) to Kings Cross station. When leaving the station take any exit and ensure that Euston Road is in front of you and that the King?s Cross and St. Pancras stations are behind you. Turn left and walk down Euston Road, Euston Road then turns into Pentonville Road. Walk down this road and the 2
nd street on your right is King?s Cross Road. Take this road and as it curves around to the right you will see a big Travelodge hotel on your left. The Clink is a former courthouse located directly after this hotel. Walking time is 10 minutes.

Gatwick Airport is not connected to the underground system. By overland rail, First Capital Connect trains take you directly to St. Pancras station. Once at St. Pancras station follow the directions above.

If you are going to be in London for a few days, it will be cheaper for you to buy an Oyster Card on arrival. This will give you savings on all London?s public transport for the length of your stay.

This info can be found on your pre-departure information document also.
