This page aims to offer an alternative route to the Shaftesbury Theatre from Tottenham Court Road Underground Station.
A photographic walking route from Holborn Station to the Shaftesbury Theatre is available by clicking here.
The escalators from the platforms end in a large underground area. Take
exit 3, and it will bring you out almost

If you exit the station and see instead shops ahead of you, cross the road, the Dominion theatre is ahead of you to your right at the junction.

concrete tower block called "CentrePoint" across a busy road - it is
the concrete tower visible ahead and to the right in this photograph!
"New Oxford Street":
Carry on walking, crossing Bainbridge Street (almost an alleyway!), and

Continue down this new street, and the theatre is ahead of you to the left,
across Bloomsbury Street - the arrow in the photograph below shows where to
The safest way to cross to it is to continue down Bloomsbury Street until you
reach the junction just by the arrow in the photograph below:
