Directions: • The closest tube station is Tottenham Court Road (Northern and Central lines) • After exiting the tube (there are several exits), walk up Tottenham Court Road (the Dominion Theatre should be on your right) • Turn right onto Great Russell Street and continue until you see the British Museum ahead of you • Next turn left on Bloomsbury Street and then right onto Montague Place (where you will see the King Edward Entrance). This is the north entrance of the museum, with the lion statues • If you are looking for an alternative route to the British Museum, Russell Square tube station (Piccadilly Line) is a short walk away
