Our location

Map & directions

Ravensbourne is located at the heart of London’s newest creative community on the Greenwich Peninsula. Nestled beside The O2, with views stretching across the river Thames and the twinkling lights of Canary Wharf, we're incredibly proud to be part of the Royal Borough of Greenwich and just a 15 minute tube ride from the bustling heart of Central London. 

You can enjoy discounts at a large selection of the outlets inside The O2 and explore the rapidly growing selection of attractions on the Peninsula, including the ‘Up at The O2’ climbing experience, Oxygen Free-jumping and London's first-ever riverside linear park.

By the end of the year, we will also see the opening of the neighbouring Design District — bringing over 13,000 new creatives to the area and presenting untold opportunities for collaboration.

We are:

  • 5 minutes from Canary Wharf
  • 10 minutes from London Bridge
  • 15 minutes from Waterloo
  • 20 minutes from Bond Street

The Jubilee line is the only Underground route that connects with all others - so not only you can reach us easily, National Rail passengers from all over the UK can too.

It is a 2 minute walk from North Greenwich underground station to Ravensbourne.

On exiting the station, please follow signs to The O2 and follow the covered walkway to The O2′s main entrance.

Before you reach the main entrance to The O2, turn right into Penrose Way and Ravensbourne's entrance is on your right.

Eight TFL bus routes operate to and from North Greenwich including three 24 hour bus services.

Key destinations include Stratford, Charlton, Greenwich, Lewisham, Woolwich, Eltham, North Kent and Central London. Please visit the Tfl website for timetable information.

By Car

We have a small loading bay at the rear of the building for pick up and set down only. We advise if you are parking for the day to use Car Park 4 in Cutter Lane which is 3 minutes walk from Ravensbourne.

Follow signs for the O2 which is clearly signposted and easily accessible from the M25, the A2/A20 (from the South East) and the M11 (from the North).

Our postcode for route and journey planners is SE10 0EW. If you need a junction, use Millennium Way or Edmund Halley Way. Ravensbourne is opposite the O2 right next to North Greenwich Underground and bus station.

Please visit the Thames Clipper website for routes, fares and journey times.

By National Rail

Charlton mainline station is just a short ride on either a 486, 472 or 161 bus from North Greenwich Underground station.

All these buses start their route from North Greenwich underground so there is no confusion as to which way to go!

Southeastern runs services to Charlton train station. Turn left out of the station and catch 486, 472 or N472 buses to North Greenwich.

By Eurostar

The current network takes the Eurostar into St. Pancras, from where you only need to jump on the Northern Line down to London Bridge where you can then change for the Jubilee Line.
