Goulston Street

Building code: GS

Named after Sir William Goulston, an active member of James II's Parliament and a prominent resident of Whitechapel, the Goulston Street building is situated between Aldgate East and Aldgate Underground stations and is easy to get to from all areas of London.

Situated in one of the most exciting parts of the city, it is here where you will meet one of London's most diverse communities. Our students enjoy the local area rich in history and culture and therefore benefit from neighbours such as the Whitechapel Gallery, Petticoat Lane, Spitalfields and Columbia Road markets.

Located minutes from Aldgate and Aldgate East tube stations, Goulston Street is served by the Circle, Metropolitan, District, and Hammersmith & City lines. Mainline train stations Liverpool Street and Fenchurch Street are a short walk away.

Please use the Goulston Street entrance.
