Travel Directions:

Sustainable Travel


By Rail:

There are frequent services from London Waterloo to Egham (35 minutes); Woking to Egham (35 minutes, change at Weybridge) and Reading to Egham (40 minutes). Services at weekends, especially those on Sunday, are less frequent than on weekdays.

On Foot from Egham:

The College is just over a mile from Egham Station. Turn right out of the station along Station road and walk about 100 yards to the T-Junction and the traffic lights. Turn left at the junction and follow the road up to the large roundabout; go left up Egham Hill. The main College entrance is on the left about a mile from the roundabout, after the second footbridge. However, to reach the Queen’s Building, turn left through the pedestrian gate at the beginning of campus (which is adjacent to a locked vehicle gate and just before the first pedestrian bridge). Follow the pavement on the left of the road past the car park and some conifer trees. The first building on the left is the Queen’s Building, which Geography (ground floor) shares with Earth Sciences (first floor and basement).

By Road:

The College is on the A30, 20 miles from central London and about a mile south-west of the town of Egham. It is 2 miles from junction 13 of the M25 (London Orbital). After leaving the motorway take the A30 west, signposted to Bagshot and Camberley (not Egham). At the first roundabout, take the second exit; at the second roundabout, again take the second exit and continue on the A30 up Egham Hill. The College is on the left at the top of the hill. There are footbridges across the road at the pedestrian and main entrances.

By Bus from Egham:

London Country buses 441 and 443 (Staines to Slough) stop near the station and at the College main entrance. There is also a College bus service, but tickets for this must be obtained in advance: they are available from the College shop, and also from the Budgens store in Egham. The College bus, like the taxis, leaves from the main car park adjacent to the station.

By Taxi from Egham:

There is a taxi rank immediately behind Egham station in the main station car park; the Gemini Cars taxi offices can be found at 50, Station Road on the opposite side to the station, and about 200 yards from the station in the direction of Egham town centre. Gemini taxis can also be booked by telephone: call 01784 432222; other nearby taxi companies include Allpoint Cars on 01784 432468 and Arrow Cars on 01784 436533.

From Heathrow:

Taxis are available from Heathrow airport, 8 miles away, but can be expensive. It is far better to book a taxi in advance (e.g. from Gemini - see above), in which case a fixed fare (currently £16 to £22) will be charged. Alternatively take bus number 441 from Heathrow Central to the College, or go by tube to Richmond and then take a train to Egham.
