While the nearest underground stations are Holborn (running on Piccadilly and Central lines) and Temple (running on District and Circle lines) the closest tube and mainline train station with wheelchair access is Waterloo station. This station has lifts to and from the Jubilee line, mainline station and street level at Waterloo Road.

For assistance at Waterloo ring the following number, preferably 48 hours in advance:
  • South West Trains: 0845 6000 650
Alternatively drop into the Station reception. To reach the Station reception from the concourse, take exit 3 by Costa Coffee and turn right.

Station reception is open between the hours of 07:30 and 21:00 Monday to Saturday, and 09:00 and 21:00 on Sundays.

Outside these hours you can ask any member of Waterloo Station staff and they will arrange assistance for you.

A map of Waterloo along with all other major London railway stations is available from Network Rail.

For assistance at Holborn or any other Underground station please ring +44 (0)20 7222 1234 .

From Holborn

If you are coming from Holborn, turn left out of the main entrance and walk along Kingsway. After 5 to 10 minutes you will come across the LSE's New Academic Building. Turn left here into Sardinia Street. Continue to walk up, into Lincoln's Inn Fields. 32 Lincoln's Inn Fields will be on the right side of the street.

From Temple

If you are coming from Temple turn left out of the main entrance, cross Temple Place and go up Arundel Street. You need to cross right across the Aldwych. From here turn left and follow the Aldwych until you come to Kingsway on the right hand side. Walk up Kingsway and turn right into Sardinia Street. Continue to walk up, into Lincoln's Inn Fields. 32 Lincoln's Inn Fields will be on the right side of the street.

Directions By Bus.

Several buses stop at the Aldwych. The numbers are: 1, 4, 6, 9, 11, 13, 15, 23, 26, 59, 68, X68, 76, 77a, 91, 139, 168, 171, 172, 176, 188, 243, 341 and 521.

Many of these services such as numbers 1, 68 and 188 are low floor buses. A complete list is available from Transport for London.

Arguably the least crowded and easiest to access is the Riverside Bus (RV1) service to Aldwych/Covent Garden, which runs from Tower Gateway,onto London Bridge, Tate Modern, and Waterloo Station before its final destination. A map showing the RV1 drop off point is here. From the Aldwych you will need a further 10 minutes to reach Portugal Street.

See Further Public Transport Information below for other bus, tube and train routes.

Car Parking.

There are no dedicated parking spaces outside 32 Lincoln's Inn Fields, but there is pay and display parking and 'Green Badge Bays' (Camden's own disabled person's permit for parking) in around Lincoln's Inn.

The area around the LSE falls between Westminster City Council and Camden Council, with metered and pay and display parking.

For Blue Badge holders there are seven dedicated parking bays within reasonable walking distance: one in Portugal Street (often full); one in Sheffield Street (new, apparently rarely used); three in Surrey Street (rarely all full); two in Temple Place (also rarely both full).

Each council also runs its own disabled person's concession permit for parking. Information is available for
  1. Camden's Applying for a disabled blue badge holders parking bay/dedicated disabled parking bay
  2. The disabled parking scheme from Westminster City Council.
