Hooray!  I'm coming too.  Got to find out where it is now... and I won't have Anna with me to navigate!

By car and tube - to Camden Town, I suppose.  I haven't looked properly yet, but from what I can remember, it seems quite near, but that means nothing in terms of getting lost!

Hi Carolyn,

I've found instructions (in Word format if that's ok) here:

http://www.efdss.org/front/Visiting%20Us%20and%20Accessibility/visiting-cecil-sharp-house/214224

Scroll to the bottom of the page to click on:

Written directions to Cecil Sharp House

There's lots of detail there and hence lots of words and sentences! I thought it would be a bit antisocial to post it all on the forum! If you're not able to get the Word document to work then let me know and I can cut-and-paste them and PM them to you.

All the best,

David.

It might be useful to 'walk it' on google streetmaps.

We have walked from Camden Town a few times and its not that far - pretty much a straight road a one right turn as I recall.

It will be our first visit to Cecil Sharp House. Can anyone recommend anywhere nearby to eat.

The craft thing sound interesting, Dawn, but I am commited to my exercise class on Thursday mornings.

Hi Gill,

If you are arriving at Camden Town tube station and take a look at the note I posted earlier about how to find Cecil Sharp House in general (perhaps you already have but I reproduce it here for you anyway!):

   "http://www.efdss.org/front/Visiting%20Us%20and%20Accessibility/visiting-cecil-sharp-house/214224

    Scroll to the bottom of the page to click on:

    Written directions to Cecil Sharp House

   "

then you will find yourself walking up Parkway. There are lots of places along there to eat (Pizza, Indian, pubs, ...).

If you arrive with lots of time on your hands you could explore Camden High Street (turn right as you leave Camden Town tube and head up towards Camden Market). Dawn and I have done that before but have always ended up finding somewhere back on Parkway to eat!!!

We normally gravitate towards Pizza Express, halfway up Parkway, on the left hand side.

Hope this helps in some way.

David.

Thanks, David. Now that we are not working we will probably spend some time exploring the area. Pizza Express is one of the usual places we frequent when going to gigs.

There's a little Italian restaurant down the road (on a corner) that is nice too. And don't forget if you want something light there's a cafe at cecil sharp house in the basement.
