229 is one of the trending London venues with 760 people seating capacity. The venue regularly hosts music performers, singers, ceremonies and gigs. It first opened its doors in 1965 and after the major refurbishment in 2007, it became what we know about it now — a respected diversified place which hosts acts from Europe and beyond. On top of that, 229 boasts its own online ticketing system and runs its own promotions.
The location of 226 is very convenient and easily accessible by any transport you choose.
By train and tube: take the Hammersmith & City line. Your trip will take around 10 minutes if you are travelling from London downtown. Exit the Great Portland Street station. The venue will be 1 minute away from the station, right around the corner.
By car: even with such convenient route for the tube ride to 229, you might wish to go to the venue by car. In this case, your trip to the place will depend on your departure point.
International: you can also get to the 229 from both international airports of London. In case you are travelling from Heathrow, you will have to spend approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes on the bus to reach your destination. The bus N9 will take you to the Old Park Lane Hard Rock Cafe where you can switch to C2, or you can go to the Trafalgar Square by the same bus and take N18, which will take you right to the doors of the venue.
Unfortunately, the 229 doesn’t have any parking facilities for their events, so you might want to go with the tube option for getting there. Unfortunately, there is no parking for people with special needs which means they will have to use the street parking on Great Portland Street.
Access for people with special needs
Even though 229 London does not have a dedicated accessible parking, it does have accessible seating, viewing, toilets, and even bar area.
