Our location

Map & directions

As a cutting-edge creative institution, Ravensbourne couldn't be better placed.

We're located on the Greenwich Digital Peninsula, London's newest digital community, just 20 minutes away from Tech City, the capital's fast-growing media and technology hub.

We're right next door to the world-famous O2 music arena, and as a learner here you'll be eligible for discounts to a number of its restaurants, bars and shops.

Easy to get to by London Underground, river and road, we are well connected to the rest of London, the UK and the world.

London is the only place to be on this kind of course as there is no other city that offers as many freelancing jobs to students. If you take up every opportunity Ravensbourne gives you, you will already be freelancing in industry before you finish your degree.

By Tube

Take the Jubilee Line to North Greenwich (Zone 2).

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.

By Bus

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.

Just one stop via the Jubilee line from Canary Wharf or Canning Town.

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.
