The Cockpit is on Gateforth Street, which is at the north end of Church Street. Church Street runs between Edgware Road and Lisson Grove.
The nearest stations are Edgware Road (Hammersmith & City, District, Circle, Bakerloo) and Marylebone (Bakerloo and main line). Both are about a 7 minute walk away.

Church Street is easy to spot in the daytime because of the market. We're at the top end opposite "Alfie's Antiques", a large and distinctive building. If you're walking from the tube, here are further instructions:
Leave the main exit and turn right. Continue and go straight down along Harewood Row (with the Travelodge on the corner) and you will reach Lisson Grove.
Turn right and keep walking until you reach the traffic lights. Turn left onto Church Street and then right onto Gateforth Street.
From Edgware Road:
There are two exits depending on which line you arrived on. From the Hammersmith & City, Circle or District platforms, exit the station and walk straight down to Edgware Road (passing the window cleaner statue on your right). Turn right and walk under the flyover. You will be at the Bakerloo Line exit.
From the Bakerloo line exit, walk along Edgware Road away from the flyover and take the forth right onto Church Street (it's the first proper crossroads you'll come to). Walk to the end of Church Street and Gateforth Street will be the last turn on the left.
Buses stopping nearby are 6, 16, 18, 98, 139, 189, 332, 414.
Saturdays - if you are visiting on a Saturday avoid driving if you can. It is difficult, verging on impossible, to get to us or find parking because of the Church Street Market, and as Lisson Grove is the only Pay & Display parking in the vicinity, spaces are extremely limited. Most other streets near us are Resident Permit Holders only (don't take the chance, you will get a ticket).
There is unrestricted parking (single yellow line) after 6.30 pm and on Sundays in most local streets and just along from the theatre in Gateforth Street.. At other times there is Pay and Display parking available on Church Street (not on Saturdays), and Lisson Grove.
There are three disability badge-holder bays directly in front of the Cockpit. Avoid the 'resident only' bays nearby!
The Cockpit has a small car park for staff and show vehicles only (call or email to check availability) .
We are able to offer all our visitors discounted car parking at Q-park Church Street just a short distance from the theatre.
A discount of 10% is available on pre-bookings. To pre book and guarantee your space please visit the Church Street Q-Park website entering cockpit as the promo code.
We have a bike rack available in our car park, which is for companies using the theatre only (call or email to check availability). We do not accept responsibility for any bikes left here during the day and we ask that no bikes are left overnight.
There are Barclays Cycle Hire docking stations at the junction of Church Street and Penfold Street, Marylebone Station, Mallory Street by the Greenside Community Centre, and on Lisson Grove by the canal bridge.
We are very near the Lisson Grove basin on the Regents Canal.
