We run courses covering all aspects of social enterprise in a converted fire station in London Bridge.

School for Social Entrepreneurs London

How to Find Us


London Bridge – Jubilee & Northern line (Bank Branch). Take the Tooley Street exit (Exit 3) from the station. Turn right, and walk along Tooley Street towards Tower Bridge. As you walk down the street you will pass the Hilton Hotel on your left followed by Tesco and Costa Coffee, immediately after Costa Coffee is Abbotts Lane. You will see a glass door at the side of the red brick old Fire Station, that’s our entrance. Ring the bell marked ‘SSE’ and we’ll buzz you in!


Routes 47, RV1, 343, 381 stop outside our offices, and any bus to London Bridge station will drop you off just a few minutes’ walk from SSE.

By cycle or car:

Cycle racks are available. We regret there is no onsite parking. The nearest car park is the NCP at the junction of Snowsfields and Kipling Street nearby (approximately 600 metres).
