Local transport

For full details of transport to the College see our Location page.

For those arriving at Heathrow Airport, we strongly recommend that you do not take the expensive black cabs, but consider calling one of the local taxi firms such as Gemini (+44 1784 471111) – a taxi should cost around £23 from Terminals 1-4 and £19 from Terminal 5  and takes about 20 minutes (Gemini Taxis charge £70 from London Gatwick) – or take a bus (route 441 from the Heathrow Central Bus Station or Terminal 5, and route 71 from Terminal 5 go from Heathrow to Egham and Englefield Green, but take between 30 and 45 minutes).

We currently also recommend Gemini taxis for a reliable, friendly, local service from hotels to the campus (+44 1784 471111).
