How to find us
The Castle is located between Finsbury Park and Clissold Park in North London. We're within London Transport Zone 2 (nearest tube station is Manor House) and easily accessible by tube, bus or train. When you get near, you can’t miss it. It’s 200 feet high and it really is a castle!
To find us in a conventional street atlas, we are on Green Lanes between Seven Sisters Road and Lordship Park, adjacent to Stoke Newington West Reservoir. Most new street maps show the building as The Castle or Climbing Centre. Older maps may show Water Works or Pumping Station.
Manor House (Picadilly Line) is the nearest tube station to the Castle. Take exit 3 and walk down Green Lanes (away from the park) for about 4 minutes until you see you the Castle on your left.
Finsbury Park tube (Victoria/Picadilly/National Rail) is also nearby (15 minutes walk).
You can also use the Transport for London web site to plan your journey: www.tfl.gov.uk
