Campus Facilities

Unfortunately, since RP will be held out of term time, there will be no restaurants open in the evening on campus. Dinner will be provided as part of the accommodation on Wednesday evening. Thursday evening is the banquet. On Friday evening, we recommend exploring the local area, where many good restaurants/pubs are within walking distance (see below).

Cafe:

  • The Boilerhouse Cafe -- picturesque location, Starbucks coffee
  • Crosslands -- pub and food
  • Cafe on the square -- a new cafe will be open in the new library building near the Founder's Building.

There is also a Union Shop selling convenience goods (food, toiletries, stationery, &c...).

Off-Campus

There are two towns/villages within walking distance of campus: Egham and Englefield Green.

Egham is the larger town, and does surprisingly well for restaurants. Good independent restaurants can be found on Egham High Street, while Egham Roundabout hosts the chain restaurants Prezzo and Loch Fyne.

There are many local pubs, which also serve proper food. For example The Happy Man and The Barley Mow towards Englefield Green, and The Crown in Egham.

Conference Dinner

The conference dinner will be held on the 7th September at The Bluebells Restaurant. A bus will be arranged from the Royal Holloway campus.

Tourism

Egham itself is a historic town, with the Magna Carta having been signed nearby. It is also close to Windsor, where Windsor Castle is located, as well as the Windsor Great Park (a park large enough to contain two villages).

For the less historically inclined, Egham is also close to Legoland and Thorpe Park. London is easily accessible by train.

Local travel is best done by bus. There are two local bus companies running different routes: Abelio and First. Journeys can be planned via their websites here and here.

London is best reached via Egham Station which is an approximate 15-20 minutes walk away. Fast trains to London take 40 minutes and run at hh:23 and hh:53 and cost approx £12 return. Slower trains taking approx 1hr run between these times. The last train back to Egham is at approx 23:50 (double check before travelling). Train journeys can be planned via National Rail.
