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.

We will arrange a taxi service on the night. There are no official event car parks around Old Billingsgate and vehicles are not permitted to stop/wait outside the venue and Lower Thames St (but there may be limited room for pick-ups around Great Tower Street, Trinity Square and in the vicinity of Eastcheap, and please look at the NCP website
Please remember that Underground and Railway stations may not be open when you finish your walk, so it’s best to plan ahead and look at other ways to get home. Please do not arrange pick ups adjacent to the venue on Lower Thames St, as this area can get very congested.
