How to Get to IWA Canalway Cavalcade

We've included some information to help you plan your journey, but works are often scheduled over Bank Holiday weekends so please check your route before you travel.

Nearest Tube

Paddington (Hammersmith & City line) station leads directly on to the towpath and Paddington (Circle line) - approximately 5 minutes’ walk.

Please note that Warwick Avenue underground station will be closed and the Bakerloo Line will not be operating at all during the Cavalcade weekend. Visitors to Cavalcade should check TfL and National Rail Enquiries route planners before they travel, look and listen out for notices and announcements which may affect their journeys.

Nearest Rail
