==== How to get to Limehouse Town Hall: ====
NB: Unfortunately Limehouse Town Hall is not wheelchair accessible
- there are steps from the street and up to the main hall.
== By Tube:
Limehouse DLR from Bank or Tower Gateway
== By Bus:
15 from Trafalgar Sq / 115 from Aldgate /
D6 from Hackney / D3 from Bethnal Green
Beware! Google's location for E14 7HA is a bit off, it's actually
opposite where Salmon Lane joins Commercial Road, or in other words...
Get onto Commercial Road and travel East from Aldgate or Whitechapel.
Stay on Commercial Road, passing Limehouse DLR on your right (and
going under a railway bridge) and you'll see a modern red brick church
also on the right, then a boarded up library. Just over the canal
you'll see the Town Hall, with the Limehouse Hawksmoor church behind
it, on the opposite side of the road from the big metal anchor. At
this point you should get off the bus/bicycle and come ring on the
"Boxing Club" bell (The top of the 4 main buttons).
