Meet Vincent van Gogh will be at Upper Ground, SE1 9PP (behind the National Theatre) from Friday 7 February 2020. Here's how to get there:
The tube is the most efficient and convenient way to reach the exhibit.
The nearest tube stations are Waterloo (on the Northern, Bakerloo & Jubilee lines), Southwark (on the Jubilee line), or take a stroll over the Hungerford Bridge from Embankment (on the District, Circle, Northern and Bakerloo lines).
Waterloo, Waterloo East and Charing Cross (along the river via the Hungerford Bridge) are all 10 - 15 minutes walk away from the venue.
Taking the tube is by far the easiest way to reach the exhibit, but if you’re driving, there is car parking at the National Theatre with the entrance on Upper Ground by Theatre Avenue.
Rates for the car park range from £7 for 2 hours to £28 for 24 hours.
There is no disabled parking on site however the National Theatre has wheelchair and lift access during National Theatre opening hours.
Secure bike parking will be offered on site. One of our staff will assist in locking bikes away.
