    • Pay Us a Visit

      NSPC is located at the Existential Academy,  in a prize winning building close to the Finchley Road. 

      The Existential Academy is adjacent to Tesco and surrounded by the Hampstead Cemetery, an important green space.

      Our address is: Existential Academy, 61-63 Fortune Green Road, 

      London NW6 1DR

      Fortune Green Road is in West Hampstead, close to the Finchley Road. The Jubilee tube line, West Hampstead rail station, and West Hampstead Thameslink Rail stations are just 15minutes walk away. There is a frequent bus service (number 328)  from these stations with a stop right outside our building. You can check the timetable and stopping points of the 328 along with where indiividual buses are here.  Many bus shelters have screens showing when the next bus is due. 

      We have hoops in the back of the building for cyclists to securely lock bicycles. 

      Bus and train information is available from Transport for London, which also provides  regular updates about any changes in the normal servicee

      Planning to come by car?

      Traffic and parking restrictions make driving to our building an unattractive choice, and we recommend car use only for users who have a disability that makes public transport, walking or cycling impossible. The building is close to the North Circular Road, and to the end of the M1.  There is short-term, metered on street parking with spaces immediately outside the building, but no long-term parking nearby.
