The location of the wedding can be viewed here. It is not always that easy getting to places in London, here is some information that may be of help:

Underground There is no Tube station immediately adjacent to the Church. The nearest three are:

  • South Kensington (0.7 miles)
  • Gloucester Road (0.9 miles)
  • Sloane Square (0.9 miles).

All three are on the District and Circle Lines, with the first two also on the Piccadilly line. The easiest way to work out how to get to any of these is using the Transport for London Journey Planner.

Traffic The nearest covered car park is in Sydney Street (SW3 6NR). However it is also possible to park in Battersea Park, just over the bridge. The entrance is off of Albert Bridge Road, just by its junction with Parkgate Road. A list of car parks in the neighbourhood can be viewed at Parkopedia’s site.
Parking Unfortunately, virtually all of the on-road parking in the vicinity is reserved for residents only. The controlled hours of most bays on Saturdays are 8:30am and 6:30pm, however there are a limited number that are only controlled from 8:30am to 1:30pm and also some pay and display bays.

If you want to get detailed information about on-street parking, then you can use park-up.com and enter the post code SW3 5DQ. This will provide a map with parking locations together with a list of streets, tarrifs and hours of control.

However, particularly if you are travelling some way, we would not recommend that you place any reliance on finding a spot of these types on the day.

Taxi Given the variability of other modes of transport, the easiest approach may be to take a taxi to the venue.

  • If you are arriving at one of London’s rail termini (e.g. King’s Cross, or Paddington) then these all have dedicated Taxi ranks, though you may need to allow for waiting time.
  • If you are planning to take the Tube, then Sloane Square also has a taxi rank, whereas you will have to flag down a Taxi yourself at either of the other two stations.
  • If you are staying at a London hotel then the front desk or concierge will generally be happy to book you either a Taxi or some sort of private hire vehicle; but the more notice you give them, the greater the chance of your ride arriving on time.
  • If you prefer making your own arrangements, then you can Google London minicabs. Alternatively, you can book London Black Cabs in advance via services such as ComCab and Dial-a-Cab.
Walking Finally, and assuming that the weather is not inclement, all of the suggested Tube stations and most of the suggested hotels are within a mile of the venue. Walking through Kensington and Chelsea can be very pleasant, particularly if you avoid the busy main roads, so this may also be an option that some will wish to consider.
