The Business Design Centre is proud to be a fully DDA compliant venue.

Arriving at the BDC

If you arrive by car, the BDC have 8 dedicated parking spaces for blue badge holders in our on-site car park. There is a passenger lift to street level or the BDC forecourt, or you can take the 17-step pedestrian staircase.

The route from the car park to the building is well-lit and clearly marked. The surface is firm. There are two staircases between street level and the building (5 and 12 steps respectively, all with handrails). They have a ramp on the forecourt.

If someone is dropping you off in a vehicle, please contact the BDC front of house team so we can give you access to the forecourt through our security point. Please call 0207 288 6475.

If you are coming by train, the nearest step-free station is Kings Cross and St Pancras International, which is easily reachable via bus or taxi.
