Directions to the Tropic At Ruislip
Please note there is a large car park at the venue but if it is full there is plenty of free street parking in the adjacent roads.
We are inside the clubhouse at the home of WealdStone Football Club when the stadium itself is at the end of Grosvenor Vale.
If you are thinking of leaving your car overnight then do not park in the car park, use a local street, as events at the club can mean your car is very much in the way!

By Rail: Chiltern Line trains stop at both West Ruislip and South Ruislip stations (but not always!). From West Ruislip take the U1 bus to Ruislip or Central Line to Ruislip Gardens and the E7 (U1 better). From South Ruislip take the 114 bus from near the traffic lights by the station to Ruislip Underground Station
(Last train heading west is at around 00.45. See The Chiltern Railways Web Site . Specific instructions to get to West Ruislip . There is a late train from West Ruislip at 00.45 out to Denham, Gerrards Cross, High Wycombe and beyond to Aylesbury), get the 00.10 U1 bus from Ruislip station but there are later options to get there to get this train, plan a journey from the TFL web site but an E7 to Ruislip Gardens and a tube one stop is an excellent option).
By Underground: From Ruislip Station (Metropolitan and Piccadilly Lines) turn left out of the railway station and walk up the stairs. Turn left again at the top of the stairs and go over the bridge and along what is West End Road, walk down approx 500 yards and turn (second left) into Grosvenor Vale. The club is at the end of the road.
From Ruislip Gardens Station (Central Line). Turn right into West End Road and keep going for approx 3/4 mile turn right into Grosvenor Vale, the ground is at the end of the road. Or take the E7 bus from opposite the station (so a bus that will be heading under the bridge) and get off at Grosvenor Vale. The bus has a tannoy that annouces each stop. Once you alight cross (carefully) the road and Grosvenor Vale is to your right.
NOTE RE RETURN JOURNEY from Ruislip Gardens: The last train from Ruislip Gardens to Central London is at 23.56 so before we usually finish and you need to get a bus to get there, so this route to London after a show is NOT recommended. Instead take a Metropolitain line train towards Baker Street and then the Jubilee Line to Oxford Circus to pick up the (24 hour section) of the Central Line.
By Bus. Bus routes 114, U1, H13, 331 278 and E7 all stop at Ruislip Bus Station which is by the underground station, where the E7 towards Ruislip Gardens and Ealing actually stops at the top of Grosvenor Vale. The H13 stops running at around midnight.
LAST TRAINS (Correct when last checked)
Towards Uxbridge 1.24
Metropolitan Line towards London 0.42 (as far as Wembley Park where you can pick up 24hr Jubilee Line) 0.08 to Baker Street.
Piccadilly Line towards Sudbury, Acton. 0.42 (change at Rayners Lane – runs as far as Acton Town)
NOT RECOMMENDED Central Line towards Epping from Ruislip Gardens 23.56 (20+ min walk to station first so using Metropolitain line is a better bet). For Central Line late to central London get the E7 bus (see below) to Ealing Broadway and the (night) Central line can be caught from there)
Alternatively on Friday and Saturday evenings the 114 runs Mill Hill. You should alight at Queensbury and get the night tube in from there to get to Central London but the later/last Metropolitain line trains to Wembley Park are a better bet to get the night tube.
From Central London there may well be a night bus to your area

U1 towards Ickenham, West Drayton 1.10

(This bus should be caught just up the High Street at Brickwall Lane on the right hand side)

Notes. The E7 towards Ealing can be caught from a stop at the top end of Grosvenor Vale, a distance of approximately 300 yards.
Turn left at the top of the road, the stop is 50 yards down.
These are the exact time per the TFL web site, you are advised to arrive about 5 minutes early at your departure point. We cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions.
For Northolt etc. take the 23.58 underground train to Eastcote and then the 00.13 bus number 282 from the stop just outside the station, or see the 140/night bus option below.
*For Northwood etc. take the 00.15 underground train to Eastcote and then the 00.30 bus number 282 from the bus stop on the opposite side of the road to the station.
If you get a 114 to South Harrow from there you can get a 140 bus towards Northolt + Heathrow which runs all night, or continue on the 114 to Harrow Bus Station and you can get a N18 in to Central London. Alternatively you can get the E7 from the top of Grosvenor Vale to the "White Hart Roundabout" and from there the 140 towards Harrow or Heathrow.
Also the 114 links up with the night tube at Burnt Oak (Norther Line)
