In the Heart of London

Hackney Community College is situated in the heart of Central London in the Olympic borough of Hackney; making it the perfect place to study if you want to experience all that London has to offer. The College is 10 minutes walk from the financial district of the City of London and its important business institutions such as the Bank of England and the London Stock Exchange.

Positioned just three minutes walk from Hoxton station and 15 minutes walk from Liverpool Street station you will have easy access to famous destinations such as the British Museum, Covent Garden, Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Street, Knightsbridge (Harrods), Hyde Park, South Kensington (Science, Natural History and Victoria & Albert Museums), along with Arsenal Football Club’s famous Emirates Stadium.

There are plenty of parks within walking distance of the college which provide the perfect place to relax and unwind after your studies. You will be surrounded by art galleries; so if you fancy yourself as an art critic this is the place. And, just opposite our site, are the beautiful herb gardens of the Geffrye Museum.

We’re easy to get to from the airport:

FromHeathrow: Get the Heathrow Express train from any terminal and it’s just 15-20 minutes to Paddington Station. The trains leave every 15 minutes. From there, you can take the Hammersmith and City or the Circle line underground to Liverpool Street station and we’re a 15 minute walk from there.

Alternatively, you can get the London Underground all the way from Heathrow – but it will take you longer (around 1 hour). Take the Piccadilly line to Kings Cross and then change onto the Northern Line and get off at Old Street. We’re a 12 minute walk from there.

FromGatwick: Get the Gatwick Express train to London Victoria, which takes approximately 30 minutes. From there, get the Victoria line to Kings Cross and then change onto the Northern Line and get off at Old Street. We’re a 12 minute walk from there.

Taxi There are plenty of taxis available at the airport, but we would recommend you ask us to organise this for you in advance, as we can offer a reduced, fixed cost of £65. Email
