Driving & Parking

The Gillett Street Car Park is located opposite the venue on the north edge of Gillett Square, charges £1.50 per hour during the day. IT IS FREE FROM 7 P.M. AND ON SUNDAYS.

Access is via Boleyn Road  - there is no access across Gillett Square from Kingsland Road.

From North or South – turn on to the Crossway at the traffic lights junction with Shacklewell Lane, and then left on Boleyn Road at the next traffic lights. From Newington Green: straight down Boleyn Road, then left by supermarket beyond lights at Crossway.

From East or West – there is no left turn onto Kingsland Road from Balls Pond Road, and no right turn onto Kingsland Road from Dalston Lane. You will need to turn onto King Henry’s Walk from Balls Pond Road and then right onto Boleyn Road at the traffic lights, then turn left by the supermarket. Follow signs for the Gillett Street car park.


The Vortex Club is a small first floor venue. We have a disabled toilet on the ground floor. For wheelchair users we do have lift access via the adjoining HCD building. Please tell us about your needs when you book your ticket and our volunteer staff will do all they can to accommodate you.
