Fancy a gentle meander down the River Thames? Jump on the train for some shopping in Oxford Street? Or maybe a picnic in nearby Windsor Great Park?

Our campus is located in Surrey, in the South East of England, just outside the M25. Royal Holloway is close to the attractive village of Englefield Green and a ten-minute walk from the town of Egham. With fast rail connections, you have easy access to both the capital, with its wealth of entertainment, and some of the UK’s top sporting venues such as Wimbledon and Twickenham.

The nearby towns of Staines-upon-Thames, Windsor and Richmond provide shopping, eating out, theatre and cinema experiences while the sprawling parkland of Great Windsor Park and Virginia Water Lake gives you plenty of space to clear your head and be inspired.
