One of London's most loved venues, the Borderline is nestled in the heart of London just 2 mins from Tottenham Court Road.
Why The Borderline is where it is seems to fit right into the area's history going back to the development of Soho in the late 1580s. The area's character has always been that of frivolity and creativity. Kings Square [now Soho Square] was as regal as its name suggests, with houses for the gentry of the age providing accommodation for dignitaries, captains of industry and nobility.
Parking is extremely limited in the local area, with mainly underground parking lots and metered bays available.
The nearest NCP car park is on 112 Great Russell Street.
The Borderline welcome Deaf and ambulatory disabled customers and will do all that we can to ensure that access requirements are met.
Unfortunately, there is no wheelchair access available to the premises.

We appreciate that some people may require assistance but not receive DLA, please contact us to discuss your access requirements. When you buy a ticket for a performance at The Borderline through any outlet you automatically qualify for this scheme, you will receive a confirmation email which you must present on arrival at the event. It’s that simple!
We do ask that only those people that would be unable to attend an event without the full time assistance of someone query through this scheme. The scheme is only available to ticket holders, so children aged 14 and under or Under 16 year old unaccompanied by an adult over 18 are not eligible. Please note age restrictions may vary and Club Nights are strictly Over 18s only.
Each request will be looked at individually. The scheme is run on a first come first served basis up to the capacity of the Venue’s designated area(s).
We don’t send out free tickets in advance: they are issued at the event.
