GETTING TO THE GUILD

PLEASE CONSIDER ALTERNATIVES TO DRIVING!

We support, whenever possible, the reduction of carbon emissions and unnecessary traffic caused by driving. We encourage and ask you to, if possible, walk or ride a bike to the theater if you live within a reasonable distance.

BICYCLE PARKING

Available within Plaza Lots 5, 6, and 8 (see map below) and there are several public bicycle rack location along Santa Cruz Avenue, Chestnut Street, Crane Street, and Doyle Street.

CALTRAIN

If that is not an option, our theater is located just 800 feet (a three to five minute walk) from the CalTrain Menlo Park station, making traveling to the Guild by train a great choice.  Please note that the last train North from Menlo Park Station departs at 11:50pm, and there are four trains which depart Menlo Park Station heading South after 11pm, which is the approximate end time of the typical Guild Theatre show. Please check the schedule link below to confirm this, and the exact times.

OTHER

Other methods of accessing the Guild Theatre by public transit include SamTrans buses, and the Marguerite Shuttle which services the Stanford area.

VENUE INFO
ADDRESS

949 El Camino Real
Menlo Park, CA 94025

TRANSPORTATION
NETWORK COMPANIES

If you can’t get to us by foot, bicycle, or public transportation, taking a taxi or a Transportation Network Company (such as Uber) is an option.

Because El Camino Real is a busy roadway we encourage you to designate your drop-off point as the CalTrain station (a few hundred feet away from the venue), which is a safer drop-off location than EL Camino Real. Similarly, after the show, we encourage you to arrange for pickup on nearby Menlo Avenue, which is a safer spot and avoids El Camino Real traffic.

PARKING

If you can’t get here any other way than driving your vehicle, please try to carpool with others who are attending the show. 

Immediately to the West of The Guild Theatre is a residential neighborhood of Menlo Park, in which concert parking is neither suitable nor appropriate, as the street parking in these locations is for the sole use of those who live there. Furthermore, walking to and from residential parking spaces can be dangerous, due to uneven sidewalks and overhanging tree branches which can be especially difficult to spot at night.

Instead, Menlo Park has many parking lots, including at the nearby CalTrain station, which are well-lit and just a brief walk from the theater.  Most of these parking locations are free after 6pm. We strongly encourage you to park in these locations.  Below is an interactive map showing the best spots to park, just “hover” over or click on a parking lot for more details:
