Location

1 Portal Way, North Acton, London W3 6BX

Located on Portal Way, in North Acton, it’s safe to say the Lyra feels far away from the hustle and bustle of central London. That makes it a great choice for any student looking for a place to escape the busy inner city’s constant rhythm and noise. But just because the Lyra isn’t on the banks of the Thames doesn’t mean it’s remote.

With North Acton Station so close by, you’ll be in central London in no time. Likewise, the Lyra is centrally located, near both the University College London and Imperial College London — making it a great option for students of those two universities.

If you’re looking for something local, you can be in the Westfield Shopping Centre in less than 20 minutes – ideal if you’re looking for that last-minute gift or need to pick anything up quickly! Likewise, Tesco Express and Sainsbury’s are close by, and Costa Coffee is only a few streets away — on Victoria Road.

The Lyra is a great option for anyone looking for a cool, casual student experience in North London. Scroll below to learn more. Alternatively, if you’re looking for more information or would like to arrange a viewing of this great student accommodation in London, contact Downing Students today.
