The Gatwick Express runs to Victoria with a journey time of approximately 30 minutes whilst the Heathrow Express takes 15 to get to Paddington. From either of these stations guests can take the Circle Line to King's Cross. On exiting King's Cross guests should cross the road and follow it around the corner to Gray's Inn Road. Guests should then take the third road on the left, which is Swinton Street, where they will find the hotel at the end of the road. Alternatively, taxi services are available from any of the city's airports and major railway stations.
Those making their own way to the Swinton Hotel by car will find that the most direct route through the city of London is to leave the M25 at Junction 16 and follow the M40 and subsequently the A40 towards and through central London. Guests should stay on the A40 until it becomes the A501 Euston Road, turning right onto the A201 King's Cross Road. Guests should then take the fifth right, which is Swinton Street.
