The Conference will be held in the Arts Building, which is situated near
the main college entrance (off Egham Hill, A30). As you enter the campus
you will see the main Founders Building in front of you. Walk half way
down the left side of this building. As you come to Founders main entrance
(and porters lodge) turn left away from it and cross the car park. Follow
the footpath past the campus bookshop (Waterstones) and then take the next
turning on the right. You will see the Arts Bulding immediately on your
left.

BY RAIL
(1) From Central London:
On Saturday mornings there are two 'fast' services from London Waterloo to
Egham each hour (22 and 52 minutes past the hour). The most suitable train
to take is the 8.52 from Waterloo, which arrives in Egham at 9.28.

(2) From Elsewhere:
Woking to Egham (35 minutes, change at Weybridge) and Reading to Egham (40
minutes).

BY (SHARED) TAXI FROM EGHAM STATION
From Egham station it is approximately 20 minutes walk to Royal Holloway
(directions below). Another good option is to take or - even better -share
a taxi. Taxis leave from directly behind the station building and cost
about 4 pounds - sharing this with other conference goers makes this
reasonably economic.

There is a taxi rank immediately behind the station in the main station
car park; the A2B taxi office can be found in Station Road on the opposite
side to the station, and about 200 yards from the station in the direction
of Egham town centre. A2B taxis can also be booked by telephone: call
01784 432222; other nearby taxi companies include Allpoint Cars on 01784
432468 and Gemini Cars of Egham 01784 47 11 11

BY FOOT FROM EGHAM STATION
The College is just over a mile from Egham Station, about 20 minutes'
walk. 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.

BY CAR
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. (For map see
http://www.rhul.ac.uk/Shared/Maps/local-map.gif)

PARKING will be available in car park 2, which is situated beside the Arts
Building. Turn left at the mini roundabout after entering the main gate
and take the second turn on the right.
