Travel Information

The Royal Holloway Conference Service provides up-to-date travel information. We repeat this information below for your convenience.

By air

Royal Holloway is situated in Egham, Surrey, 40 minutes from London Waterloo, a mile from the M25 and a mere fifteen minutes from Heathrow Airport by car. It is also accessible from London City or Gatwick airports and others.

Train connections to the London airports can be checked/booked through the website of National Rail. From Heathrow, taxi or bus are by far the best options.

By taxi

If you intend to take a taxi from the airport or during your stay, we strongly recommend that you book in advance from the following companies, as London black cabs can be very expensive.
