Also, St. Paul’s Underground Station is only a 10-minute walk away. These four stations mean that our Smithfield venue is easily accessible via the Elizabeth Line, Circle Line, Hammersmith & City Line, Metropolitan Line, National Rail Thameslink and Central Line. So no matter where in London you’re travelling from, it won’t be hard to navigate your way onto one of these lines to reach the venue.
