Plan your Journey
Don’t get stranded, plan your journey
This year’s Shine Night Walk will start at Southwark Park and end at iconic Old Billingsgate. It’s really important to plan in advance how you’re going to get to and from the venues, especially overnight when some public transport won’t be running. There is no parking near the start or finish venues so we recommend using public transport. Please aim to arrive at Southwark Park one hour before your start time.
At the start venue you’ll find toilets, refreshments, merchandise stands, a bag drop and an enquiries stand.
Public transport is recommended, there will be no official event car parks or drop off points at Southwark Park. You may want to use the Surrey Quays Shopping Centre car park, on Deal Porters Way, as a drop off point. Please note that parking time is restricted to four hours.
Please use Canada Water and Surrey Quays stations, and avoid using Bermondsey station to prevent delays getting into Southwark Park. Do not park or get dropped off in residential areas around Southwark Park.

At the finish venue you’ll find toilets, refreshments, bag collection, a taxi rank, first aid and a travel help desk.
We will arrange taxi services on the night. We recommend you download the app before you arrive and request your Gett taxi when you finish (add SHINE17 to the coupon code section of the app to get £5 off your first 10 rides – new users only), or walk to the official event rank to pick one up on the spot.
Please remember that some Underground and Railway stations may not be open when you finish your walk, so make sure you plan ahead. There are no official event car parks and vehicles are not permitted to stop/wait outside the venue and Lower Thames St, or around Monument, so please look at the NCP website to find the nearest parking.
