How to get to Lumen United Reformed Church
Lumen is where Tavistock Place meets Regent Square. If you have A to Z London that may be all you need to know.
From the railway stations to the North
From Kings Cross or St Pancras (International and Domestic) or Kings Cross/St Pancras underground get south of the Euston Road through a subway tunnel to Euston Road (South) or by using light-controlled crossing from the St Pancras side of the road that runs between the stations. In the subway, exit up the stairs to Camden Town Hall/St Pancras Library. Cross Argyle Street and turn left, walking South beside the St Pancras public library (route of the Jubilee Walkway). Near the end of Argyle Street turn right following sign to Holy Cross Church and turn left beside McGlynn’s pub ( Whidbourne Street). You will see Holy Cross church in front of you across Cromer Street. Go around left side of the church and keep forward (South – Harrison Street) to Lumen either beside short cycle path and along the short side of Regent Square or beside Stanstead housing block.
If you end up West of Camden Town Hall just walk South along Judd Street to traffic lights; turn left there (watch out for complicated traffic lights phase and strange contra-flow in cycle lane).
From Tavistock Square (buses 10, 59, 68, 91,168)
From south-eastern corner of the Square (Eastern, if you are using a compass), where there are traffic lights, come along the full length of Tavistock Place. Lumen is next to the brick office building clearly labelled high up as United Reformed Church House.
From Grays Inn Road (buses 17, 45, 46)
Alight at Eastman Dental Hospital (southwards) or Acton Street/Sidmouth Street (northwards) and walk West along Sidmouth Street beside Westminster Kingsway College, through Regent Square (pavement beside old regency terrace) to Lumen.
From Russell Square underground (Piccadilly Line)
Bus 188 terminates nearby.
Turn right out of the station, but cross two roads by zebra crossings at right angles, then walk below Brunswick Centre (concrete retail and housing complex originally built in 1970s). Turn left at end of Brunswick Centre, cross zebra below Renoir Cinema, then turn left, walk North beside garden of Brunswick Square and one more block before turning right at traffic lights (King of Falafel restaurant).
