Cycling

If you plan to cycle to the campus TfL provides information on the best cycle routes. The ride from Avery Hill Campus takes around 30 minutes using the suggested route on Google maps. Cycling is not permitted on the campus except along the designated cycle path adjacent to the river.

You can park your bicycle adjacent to Park Row in the Queen Anne car park. We recommend you invest in a good quality lock. Bicycles are left at your risk. Showers are provided on the second floor of the Queen Anne building in QA202 and a bicycle repair kit and pump at the East Gate Security Lodge.
