At the heart of Mountview's stunning new building are two theatres: the 80-seat Backstage Theatre and the 200-seat Mountview Theatre. The beautiful rehearsal studios measure between 10x8m and 10x10m and have impressive ceiling heights of 3.4m. They are perfect spaces for City Academy's portfolio or creative and performing arts classes.
There are also two soundproof specialist TV studios and a radio/voice over suite available for hire.
Opening out onto Library Square Westland Coffee and Wine is open throughout the day. A restaurant and rooftop café/bar with views of the London skyline from Battersea to Greenwich is also open to all.
Mountview is well served by the Transport for London (TfL) overground train and bus networks. Further information about travel by bus, train or tube can be found on the TfL website: Transport for London – plan your journey .
We look forward to welcoming you to our classes at this wonderful venue.
Tube - The London Overground (Orange line) leaves every 15 minutes from Peckham Rye and Queens Road Peckham. This line, as well as reaching many neighbourhoods in South West and East London, links to Canada Water (Jubliee Line), Clapham High Street (Northern Line), Whitechapel (District/Hammersmith & City Lines) and Highbury & Islington (Victoria Line). Good bus and mainline rail links also serve the Tube.
Bus - A huge range of buses stop just outside our building on Peckham Hill Street, with excellent links to major stations and tube stops Elephant & Castle (Northern Line), Vauxhall (mainline rail/Victoria line) and Waterloo. Local buses also go further into south London to destinations including Lewisham, Dulwich and Catford.
Train - Peckham Rye station has four services per hour to London Bridge (12 minutes) and two services per hour to Victoria (15 minutes). In addition, the Thameslink service serves major central stations including Blackfriars and St Pancras International.
Cycling/Walking - Peckham is just three miles from the South Bank making walking and cycling easy options. Surrey Canal Walk runs down the side of our building and into Burgess Park. This links up with cycle paths going into the City and West End via Elephant and Castle. Cycle racks can be found around Library Square and Peckham Hill Street.
