Address: Embankment Pier, Victoria Embankment, London, WC2N 6NU

The nearest Tube Station is Embankment* which is located directly across the road from Embankment Pier. Limited parking is available on the street and paid parking facilities around Embankment.

*Important information for Transport for London – Escalator replacement at Embankment:
As part of Tube improvements, we are replacing four escalators at Embankment between Wednesday 8 January and early November 2014. As a result, Bakerloo and Northern line trains will not stop at Embankment in either direction. The District and Circle lines will continue to serve the station as usual.

Customers wishing to change trains at Embankment are advised to either:
Use alternative Tube routes by changing at a nearby station such as Piccadilly Circus, Waterloo, Leicester Square, Westminster or Victoria. Walk between Charing Cross and Embankment via Villiers Street – roughly a five minute walk. Oyster settings at both stations will be updated so customers are not overcharged, as long as they touch in and out in good time.

Customers are also advised to start late night journeys 15 minutes earlier. This is to make sure last train connections at the above interchanges are made in time.
