Finding the London Embasy

19 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I've been a long time lurker, and first time poster!

My fiance has his interview for his K-1 visa in London next week and everything is in order, papers are with him and he's prepared for the interview....now we're just making sure he gets to London on time and everything works out....

I need help with one thing though: I have the address for the London Embassy and I've been looking it up on Google maps as well as on Multimap, but I keep on getting different directions and locations.

If I type in just the postcode W1A 1AE, it takes me to one spot but then if I type in 24 Grosvenor Square, London, it pulls up postcode W1K.

My fiance will be taking his handy GPS with him when he drives down but I just want to make sure it's leading him to the right spot! Can anyone please help?!

Is the Embassy in Grosvenor Square, which is in front of the park, next to Grosvenor Street? (so, Oxford Circus and Bond Street are the closest tube stations) or is it about 2 miles away which makes Tottenham Road and Goodge St the closest stations? (I hope I'm not confusing anyone...and he is driving down but I'm trying to make it less confusing by adding in the closest tube stations!)

Any help will be greatly appreciated....please!!

Thanks so much :)

...and I am about to update my timeline

Thanks! I'm confident he can find it now thanks to the clarification...just a little nerve wracking being so far away and I'd rather he drive straight to the right spot rather than trying to find his way around London when he's already nervous and anxious!

I just got confused with all the different directions and with google pointing me to the wrong spot!!

Thanks for the wishes too...can't wait for his call to say it's all been approved! :star:

My advise to him...park at one of the outer underground stations (ruislip is the one I tend to use, but it depends what part of the country he is coming from) and get the tube into the city. The embassy is a short walk away from one of the tube stations (cant remember which!) but it is surely a better idea for someone who is not from london to take this option.

Thanks for the suggestion...I'll pass it on...He's coming from the Midlands...but I think he'll get more lost with the underground. We always laugh that I know my way around London better them him! I like to say it's because I was born and raised in England and go back and travel about London on my own (without ever seeing the embassy!)...he just thinks it's confusing! But thanks, I'm going to look into that for him...didn't even think of doing the driving and public transport combo, i was only thinking of doing one or the other. :)

If he's driving where does he plan on parking? I can't imagine there would be too many reasonably priced parking spots around Grosvenor Square. He's much better off just getting the train from wherever he lives or driving to the outskirts of London and then getting public transport from there. Driving in London is not recommended unless you're very used it and know exactly where you're going and where you're going to park.

We were looking at car parks in the area. When he went for his medical in October, he drove down and parked in one of the garages and it only cost about 14 pounds for the 3 hours...I found several garages close by and the garage that is the closest is 9 pounds for 2 hours, 17 pounds up to 4 hours and then the maximum daily rate is 32 pounds so it's looks pretty reasonable for London.

I thought he was going to get lost last time, but his TomTom took him straight there with no problems and I think the embassy is only a few blocks away and he's got a whole list of available cark parks in the area...

FYI i got an open return day train ticket, with all day underground pass included, for a little under £35 (i live in gloucester - almost west midlands!).

Saves a load of hassle with london traffic and parking too!
