Shaftesbury Theatre
Walking route guide
from Tottenham Court Road
Underground Station

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 in front of the Dominion theatre:

As the arrow in the photograph shows, you need to make a "U" turn at the top of the stairs, towards where the backpacker is at the right of the photograph!

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.

Get it right, and your "U" turn leaves you facing the tall thin concrete tower block called "CentrePoint" across a busy road - it is the concrete tower visible ahead and to the right in this photograph!

As the arrow shows, in the photo below, you need to follow the street round to your right.

 This is "New Oxford Street":

and you just need to walk down it.

Carry on walking, crossing Bainbridge Street (almost an alleyway!), and later, Dyott Street (near the top of the arrow in the photograph below!):

After crossing these two roads, ahead is a major junction, Bloomsbury Street. Make good use of the traffic lights here to cross to the other side of the road you are currently on ("New Oxford Street", remember)! The arrow in the photograph below shows the crossing to make:

Now you are on the opposite corner (where the glass building is, in the photograph above), keep facing forward, with the crossing behind you. Leave "New Oxford Street" now by going straight ahead down this new road in front of you. This is "Bloomsbury Street" - it forms the part of the corner ahead of you and to your left as you leave the crossing!

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 look:

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:
