Location & Travel

The London Road Social Club

Cell Barnes Lane

St Albans, Hertfordshire, AL1 5AS

This venue is in St Albans, Hertfordshire UK. It is a detached building, with its' own  free on-site parking. 

  The venue is on a very long road called Cell Barnes Lane... so best to aim for the small road opposite the venue front door, called Mountbatten Close.

Another helpful hint is that the  Tango at the Barn is situated just off the London Road,  just around the corner from Samuel Ryder Academy 

St Albans City Station is about a 15 minute walk, or catch a taxi outside, or the 84 bus - which stops by Samuel Ryder Academy.
