Please note the staircase between Arlington Street and Park Place is closed from 31 July 2015 while renovations are carried out on 4 and 5 Park Place. It is due to re-open in Autumn 2016. In the meantime, Over-Seas House continues to be accessible via St James’s Street.

By Bus:


The following buses stop outside Green Park tube station on Piccadilly: numbers C2, 9, 14, 19, 22 and 38, running west to Hyde Park Corner, Victoria and Knightsbridge, and east to Piccadilly Circus and Holborn.


By Car:


Travelling west on the A4 (Piccadilly), turn left onto St James's Street and second right into Park Place cul-de-sac, Over-Seas House is at the end. If there is no space in the Over-Seas car park, alternative parking may be found in the NCP Car Park on Arlington Street off Piccadilly.
