Where is Elephant Park?
Lendlease is working in partnership with Southwark council to regenerate 28 acres of land at our Elephant Park development. Located in Central London, it sits at the heart of the capital, but if you’re looking for specificity, just look to the name. The fact that Elephant Park takes part of its name from the area in which it stands is no accident. Rather, the moniker is intended as an homage to an area of London steeped in history; an area that itself takes its name from a coaching inn dating back to 1765. So just where is Elephant Park exactly, and how do you get there today?
Between the Northern line and Jubilee line, Elephant & Castle Underground Station is remarkably well connected. With stations like Waterloo, London Bridge and King’s Cross reachable in just a matter of minutes, it’s the best bet for anyone coming to the area by public transport.
The nearby Elephant & Castle National Railway Station operated by Thameslink runs both Thameslink and South-eastern services. Thameslink is perfect for getting to and from London Gatwick and Luton Airport.
Other transport options include the station’s surrounding bus stops, from where upwards of 50 routes can be taken in and out of the area. Cyclists too are well served by the area’s cycling infrastructure, maintained by Transport for London and the London Borough of Southwark. It is the southern terminus for traffic-free bikeway Cycleway 6, the northern terminus of which is in Kentish Town.
Alternatively, Elephant and Castle is well connected for drivers. The London inner Ring Road passes through its main junction, as does the A3 which gives access to traffic arriving from and going to Clapham, Gatwick Airport and Portsmouth.
Where is Elephant Park from Elephant & Castle?
As mentioned, Elephant & Castle is easily accessible from such major stations as Waterloo, London Bridge and King’s Cross St. Pancras. Both London Bridge and King’s Cross St. Pancras appear on the Northern Line, meaning alighting Southbound from either station will get you there in no time. From Waterloo, alight Southbound on to the Jubilee line for a 4-minute journey.
However, upon leaving the station you may still wonder, where is Elephant Park? As we’ve said, they’re only a sub-5-minute walk from one another, but to save you some time, here’s a brief run-down of how your walk should look.
From Elephant & Castle station, walk north on New Kent Road and bear right. When you arrive at Elephant Road, turn right. You should pass Elephant & Castle’s Thameslink station on your right, after which Elephant Park is immediately on your left. Within it, you will find our Park & Sayer and West Grove apartments.
Alternatively, you can also walk South and take a slight left onto Walworth Road, then left again onto Elephant Road. Halfway up Elephant Road, Elephant Park will be on your right.
