Tube lines: The large number of tube and train links makes Earl's Court a very good place to stay.

  • The Piccadilly line is good for the West End – Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square and Covent Garden.
  • The Circle Line runs from Gloucester Road only East to the City, and also North to Paddington and Notting Hill.
  • The District line has many branches, so be careful to get on a train that is going the right way - pay close attention to the electronic signs on the platform. It runs East to Westminster and the City of London, West to Richmond, North to Paddington and Notting Hill, and South to Wimbledon. From Wimbledon, there are connecting train services to many interesting attractions in South West London, such as Hampton Court.

Bus: The main bus service that is useful for tourists is the 74 from Earl's Court, along Cromwell Road and past the museums to Knightsbridge, Hyde Park corner and Oxford Street. This is a double decker service so you can admire the view as you go.

Bicycles: Earl's Court also has the public “Boris bikes” introduced in 2009. See our travel section for general advice about these bikes. In addition, specifically for the Earl's Court area, we don't recommend any trip where you plan to return the bicycle to an Earl's Court docking station in the evening. They are often all full, and you can waste a lot of time cycling around trying to find a space somewhere.
