Getting to Royal Holloway

Royal Holloway, University of London

Egham Hill

Egham, Surrey TW20 0EX

A local area map (showing campus and Egham Station) might also be useful to you.

By air: For those arriving at London airports, we strongly recommend that you do not take the expensive black cabs, but call Windsor Cars (+44 1753 677677) or other Egham-based Taxi companies. Windsor Cars have a dedicated email for pre-booking journeys: Most local taxi companies know the Royal Holloway campus well and should be able to drop you at the correct area for check-in.  Sharing a taxi with other delegates will help keep costs to a minimum. 

By Bus: There is a reasonable bus service from Heathrow Terminal 5 to Royal Holloway. The number 8 bus leaves from outside Terminal 5 and not from the Central Bus Station. If you arrive at another terminal, please follow flight connection signs for internal airport transfer to T5. 

By Train: Egham is the nearest station to Royal Holloway. There are frequent services from London Waterloo to Egham (35-40 minutes); Woking to Egham (35 minutes, change at Weybridge) and Reading to Egham (40 minutes). Train links to the rest of the rail network are available via the London stations or Reading. Please visit their website for timetables and journey planning options. There are usually taxis waiting outside the station which can take you to the campus. Alternatively, you could walk to Royal Holloway in 15-20 mins; see below.

By Car: Royal Holloway is on the A30, 19 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, following the signposts to Bagshot and Camberley (this is the Egham by-pass). 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.
