Travel advice and maps

The seminar takes place at the South Kensington Campus of Imperial College, in Huxley (No. 13 on the Imperial Campus Map). See also Google Maps to get an overview of the area, showing also the closest Tube stations (Gloucester Road and South Kensington).

International guest best take a flight to Heathrow or Gatwick. From Heathrow, take the Underground (Picadilly Line) to Gloucester Road or South Kensington Station (~45 min). From Gatwick, take a train to Victoria station (~40 min) and then the Underground (District or Circle Line, westbound) to Gloucester Road or South Kensington Station. Have a look at theĀ London Underground Map.

Another airport you could fly to is London City. Since this is a very small airport, it is very fast and convenient. However, travel between London City Airport and Imperial takes a bit longer and is more complicated. The fastest way is by using the DLR between London City Airport and Canning Town, changing to the Jubilee line to Westminster and from there use again the District or Circle Line westbound to either Gloucester Road or South Kensington. There is also the slower option, changing only once at Bank/Monument. Again: Have a look at the London Underground Map.

For local traffic, there are also many buses (see London Bus Map). Close stops are National History Museum, Queen’s Gate, South Kensington Station or Royal Albert Hall. If you take a taxi cab, drive to 180 Queen’s Gate, the address of the Huxley Building. In general, it is better to arrive at the College from Queen’s Gate rather than via the main entrance at Exhibition Road.
