By Car / Motorcycle & Parking Info

Driving to Cleaver Square, there is no entry from Kennington Park Road – foot access only. The Club is located within a one-way system so you will therefore need to access Bowden Street from Kennington Lane. It is easiest to turn left onto Cleaver Square if you are driving SouthEast on Kennington Lane (approaching from Elephant & Castle direction). Otherwise, coming from Kennington Road, Milverton Street will get you close to the Club.

Free car parking is available outside the club, all day at weekends and after 6.30pm on weekdays. At other times pay and display parking is available in nearby Cleaver Square, or opposite the large pub on the junction of Kennington Road/Kennington Lane. Traffic wardens are vicious so make sure you are parked correctly.

There are two motorcycle bays near the club. one at the Cleaver Square end of Bowden Street and another at the junction of Milverton and Ravensdon Street (only one minute away).

By Bicycle

Bicycles may not be brought inside the club. There is a bike rack on the corner of Cleaver Square / Bowden Street. There is also a Cycle Hire Docking Station very near, at the junction of Kennington Road/Kennington Lane.
