Any ideas which Ikea is nearest/quickest to get to for SE1-ers?

The one in Croydon, I think. It is quite easy to drive to and if you don't have a car there is a tram which stops nearby and you can use their home delivery service whereby you buy your goods and take it to a desk after the tills. They will deliver to SE1, the price varies with quantity.

Also, you might be interested to know that they now deliver much of their range - you can order online ( ). We did this and the service was good although we had to wait a while for a delivery slot (3 weeks or so).

Or if, like me, you use public transport - then the Edmonton Branch is only 45 mins from London Bridge Underground.

Jubilee Line to Green Park and then Victoria Line to Tottenham Hale. There is an Ikea Bus [you don't have to assemble it :-)] to the store, or the 192.

I've done the journey several times, at the beginning of the week, during term time, and it's almost a pleasure!!

I also go to the Edmonton branch. There's also an overland train to Tottenham Hale from Liverpool Street Station should you happen to work near that area.

thanks - was planning on going by car (now I am a fully fledged street car user!)

Thought Croydon closest but know traffic is a nightmare down there.

So wasn't sure if quicker to head elsewhere

We've driven to the Edmonton one from Tower Bridge (in a Streetcar). It took about an hour each way on a weekday and, of course, we got sucked into the Ikea vortex and had to extend the Streetcar booking by several hours :-)

er....what is a Streetcar?

It's like a car that lets you sleep with it if you pay it money.

...if you press it, they will come.

Streetcar & Zipcar are both car clubs - you pay an annual fee of approx 50 then hire a car by the hour. Cars are dotted around London. Check out their websites...
