Irene House, 218 Balham High Road, Balham, London, SW12 9BX



Irene House is located close to Balham station (Northern line). Turn right after the ticket barriers and follow signs to the High Road (west) exit; on reaching street level, turn right and pass under the railway bridge. Balham station is also served by Southern trains into London Victoria or London Bridge; the main exit from the National Rail station is in Balham station road.


Balham High Road is a red route, but there are some designated bays where blue badge holders may park for up to three hours.  Pay & display parking bays are usually available in nearby side roads (maximum stay four hours).  The nearest car park is the Sainsbury’s pay & display car park, accessed from Balham Station Road (see map), where parking is free for up to two hours but is very expensive for longer periods; please check the time on your ticket to ensure that you return to your vehicle in good time.


There are stops for bus routes 155, 249 and 355 in Balham High Road; alight at either the Balham Station or the Du Cane Court bus stops. Route 315 terminates in Balham Station Road.
