Disabled Access at, and Travel to, the Boundary Estate Fun Palace
St. Hilda's East is a wheelchair accessible building, step free from the street and throughout the ground floor. There are lifts to the 1st and 2nd floors, once on those floors they are step free. There are wheelchair accessible disabled people's toilets on each floor, I need to clarify if one of them is a Changing Places space and will advise as soon as possible. There is level access to the small gardens at the rear of the building, and the adjoining courtyard of Culham House is accessed via gentle ramp. Cookham Courtyard is level with level access onto the footpath on old Nichol Street and Montclare Street. Assistance and guide dogs are welcome. If you have specific questions or requirements please email me, Philip, at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will try to help if at all possible. We are a resident made and run event with a small budget, so currently we are not able to provide all that we would like to in terms of access support. As a disabled person I am aware of the frustrations in attempting to take part in events such as this so I am determined to make the Boundary Estate Fun Palace as welcoming and inclusive as possible. There are no parking restrictions in the area if you are coming by car, however please be aware that Boundary Street is the borough boundary, one side (east) is Tower Hamlets where you will be fine, the other (west) is Hackney which does have Saturday parking restrictions. Calvert Avenue too is split - Shoreditch High Street to Boundary Street restricted, Boundary Street to Arnold circus unrestricted on Saturdays. Our nearest Overground Station is Shoreditch High Street, it is step-free train to platform and lift from platform to street level. It will be open on Saturday. On leaving the station turn left, then right onto Bethnal Green Road to the pedestrian crossing. Once crossed turn right, then left at Club Row and carry on - you'll soon see St. Hilda's East on the corner of Club Row and Old Nichol Street. We are served by numerous buses - on Bethnal Green Road the 8 and 388. Stop at Brick Lane, walk along Bethnal Green Road to Club Row and walk along until you see St.Hilda's East. Shoreditch High Street's many buses have some changes to them - please consult the TfL site and check it on the day for up-to-date information. To get onto the estate from Shoreditch High Street walk through Boundary Passage (next to Sports Bar) and you will see Old Nichol Street ahead. Walk along Old Nichol Street until you reach the junction with Club Row and you will see St. Hilda's. Old Street Station and Liverpool Street Station are each a ten minute or so walk away, a few minutes by bus is light traffic.
