The Lock is situated only a seven-minute walk from Hanwell station–constructed in 1838 and one of the oldest overground stations in London–with direct connections to both London Paddington and Heathrow Airport.

And with eight trains servicing the city and airport each hour, both a 20-minute journey from
Hanwell station–you’ll never be far from the excitement of the city or a flight from Europe’s busiest airport.

Hanwell is also served by a number of bus stops in the immediate area, meaning landmarks situated away from underground and overground stations are seamlessly accessible.

Travel times and accessibility will be tremendously improved with the Crossrail, which is due to be completed in 2022. This would transform travel across the city centre by providing valuable relief to existing London Underground networks. Meaning you can explore and navigate London in less time.
