Incredible thinking at an incredible venue

Trinity Laban is a venue like no other. Designed by the architects behind the Turbine Hall and Beijing Olympic Stadium, the RIBA Award-winning building is the perfect setting for three days of pure design inspiration.


The Docklands Light Railway (DLR) offers a frequent service to Cutty Sark station which is a 15 minute leisurely walk from the Laban building. The DLR joins to the London Underground at Monument / Bank (Central, Circle and District Lines), Shadwell (East London Line), Canary Wharf (Jubilee Line) and Stratford (Central Line). At Cutty Sark turn right out of the station and right again on to Creek Road. Take the second left after the bridge, Creekside and the Laban building is on your left.


If travelling from Central London, travel from Charing Cross, Waterloo East or London Bridge Stations to either Deptford or Greenwich. There are frequent trains and the journey time is approximately 15 minutes. (Please note if travelling from Charing Cross or Waterloo East, you may need to change trains at London Bridge.) The Laban building is approximately a 10 minute walk from either station.


From Central London: Take the Old Kent Road to its end in New Cross then follow the A2 until you reach the junction for Deptford Church Street. Turn left and continue to the mini roundabout, turn right into Creekside, then left into Copperas Street. The entrance to the car park is on your right.

From M2/M25: Follow the A2 until you reach the turning for the junction for Deptford Church Street. Turn right and continue to the mini roundabout, turn right into Creekside, then left into Copperas Street. The entrance to the car park is on your right.


London City Airport and London Gatwick are the most convenient airports for Greenwich. From London City Airport take a mainline train to Canning Town and change on to the Jubilee Line. Travel to Canary Wharf and change to the Docklands Light Railway there (see above). From Gatwick, catch a train to London Bridge, change there to a mainline train to Lewisham, and there on to a DLR train to Cutty Sark. If you are landing at Heathrow, travel into London on the Piccadilly Line, changing at Green Park on the Jubilee Line (see London Underground and Docklands Light Railway above).

Cutty Sark

The Cutty Sark reopened in April 2012, beginning a new chapter in the extraordinary life of the last surviving nineteenth century tea clipper, the fastest and greatest of her time. She is a living testimony to the bygone, glorious days of sail and, most importantly, a monument to those that lost their lives in the merchant service. Venture aboard and beneath one of the world’s most famous ships. Walk along the decks in the footsteps of the merchant seamen who sailed her over a century ago. Explore the hold where precious cargo was stored on those epic voyages.
