    • How to Find Us

      NSPC is located at the Existential Academy, in a prize winning building close to the Finchley Road adjacent to Tesco and surrounded by the Hampstead Cemetery, an important green space.  Please think carefully about the environment before using a car or taxi to get to us: there are very good transport links that might prove more speedy and more convenient. 

      Our address is: Existential Academy, 61-63 Fortune Green Road, London NW6 1DR.

      Come by Public Transport

      Come by public transport : 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 individual buses are here. We also support bicycle users with secure, sheltered hoops and have sponsored bicycle hoops in the street, too. Bus and train information is available from Transport for London, which also provides regular updates about any changes in the normal service.

      Planning to come by car?

      Planning to come by car? Traffic and parking restrictions make driving to our building an unattractive choice.  NSPC is also committed to a low carbon transport policy.  We want to minimize carbon emissions, and preserve the environment.  Our transport plan can be downloaded from here.  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.
