City Road: Underground guide


City Road is an ideal place to base yourself when exploring the sights and sounds of London.

Sitting slightly west of the trendy hub of Shoreditch and north of the City there is plenty to see and do within the near vicinity. It is well connected with buses regularly patrolling this lengthy street while Tube and train stations are not too far away. This makes it an absolute breeze for travelling around London.

City Road is also home to an abundance of fashionable shops allowing you to enjoy a spot of retail therapy without having to stray too far away from your hotel. Alongside the various stores, there are bars and restaurants you can unwind in after a long day of pounding the pavement as you visit the many sights London has to offer.

If you are still looking for a hotel then we recommend the M by Montcalm Shoreditch London Tech City which provides you with all the luxury you come to expect from a high-class hotel but is also placed right in the heart of London.

Our brief guide to City Road transport will ensure you will have no problems reaching your hotel.

Old Street Underground station

City Road does not have its own dedicated Underground station, but just a short walk away is Old Street. Served by the Northern line, it is only a couple of minutes’ walk from the top of City Road and close to the M by Montcalm.

It is well connected with the rest of the city and is easily accessible from major transport termini such as King’s Cross and St Pancras International. It has all the facilities that you come to expect from any key Underground station in London with free Wi-Fi, cash machines dispensing both sterling and euros.

From Old Street, the M by Montcalm is only a few minutes walk. Simply come out of the station and walk up City Road and you will see the hotel.

Angel Underground station

At the other end of City Road is Angel Underground station, an alternative to alighting at Old Street. Situated close to Islington, this could be a great place to explore when you have a bit of spare time.

Like Old Street, it is served by the Northern line making it a breeze for connections to mainline train stations and even the airports. Again it has all the facilities you come to expect from a station of this ilk.

To reach the M by Montcalm, turn left out of the station then follow the road until you reach City Road and then walk up until you see the hotel; the journey takes around 15 minutes.
