I'd go to St Pancras then get the tube at Kings Cross St Pancras Station and get the Victoria Line to oxford circus where you can change onto the central line and go to bond street station or get off and walk to it along oxford st. Then at bond st station head down gilbert street, which is just next to the station, until you hit brook st. Then turn right and if you walk for 2 mins you'll start to see grosvenor square and the embassy. Well, thats how I found the place anyway.

Marble Arch or Bond Street tube station are the best options :)

Does anyone know how to get to it from Victoria Coach Station? I couldn't face paying like £100 for train tickets, when Megabus tickets are only £23 for a return! However this means i have to get on the bus at 4am, and i arrive at 8.30, and my appointment isn't until 11. But at least that gives me lots of time to find it!

So yeah, how do i get there? Bus, train, tube? So confusing!

Alissa I'm getting there by megabus too from Glasgow 11am until 7ish then 5 til 2:30am - fuuu n! =D ...but worth it compared to the price of other options :) I remember last year I just cut out the hassle and just got a black hack from outside victoria coach station and I think it was only about a fiver so that may be a good option if you're like me stressing about getting lost in London haha - I'm sure it's quite simple but i find navigating London quite daunting personally :P So many public transport routes!

I know, the train prices are just shocking! And it's hard enough paying for Camp America itself so where i can cut costs i am lol, even if it means a 4am bus :|
Oh really a cabs that cheap? I'll just do that then! My appointment is at 11am, but i'll arrive at London at 8.30am (it was that or arrive at 10.55) so i think i'll go for a bit of breakfast and kill some time, then just catch a cab! Seems like a good plan :)

What times your appointment? And what day? Jeese i thought 4 1/2 hours in a coach was bad! I'm planning on putting some films on my ipod for the journey haha!

Yeah, dont get me wrong I'm pretty sure that London taxis are more expensive generally but if my memory serves me right it was only a short hop and worth it to eliminate the risk of getting lost! ...and I would have remembered if it was expensive lol as I was on a shoe string last time... And I've got even less money this year, the costs here and there keep popping up D:

My embassy appointment is at 9:30am on the 3rd May so not long to go now, just want for it to be over so I know for sure my summer is set!!

Yeah definitely take some stuff to keep you entertained and a drink n a snack incase you get thirsty or peckish :) Last time I had movies and tv shows all set and then somehow forgot my headphones (which i never do!) :( It was a looong 9hours lol and didn't want to sleep with a bunch of strangers around haha. Call me paranoid? Haha
