Lime Grove | London College of Fashion | UAL

LCF’s move to a new site as part of East Bank signals a new era for this loved west London location, steeped in history. For over a century, Lime Grove has been providing creative education and technical skills to young people.

Our Lime Grove campus is tucked away in a quiet street in the lively area of Shepherd’s Bush, one of the most diverse locations in west London. Lime Grove has been an important part of our estate for over a century, starting with three women’s trade schools specialising in dressmaking, millinery, embroidery and hairdressing merging into what was to become London College of Fashion, UAL.

Transport links

The area has excellent transport links making it an ideal location for pre-degree students. Stations on the Hammersmith and City Line, Central Line and Overground, the latter linking Clapham Junction in the south to the north London boroughs, are all within a 10–15-minute walk.

Study at Lime Grove

UAL’s pre-degree and FE studies are now creating their new home at Lime Grove, with LCF’s own two courses paving the way from this September, followed by all other pre-degree provision from September 2024.

For students across London and the world, these courses mark the start of their career in the creative industries. Now, by bringing them together in one place, UAL can evolve its pre-degree offer ensuring more opportunity for students to access targeted support, excellent teaching and relevant industry skills.
