Each tour will be delivered by a current UCL student who will take you round the main UCL campus. Tours will depart promptly from the UCL Gower Street entrance at 2pm, please try to arrive 5-10 minutes before this time to register.
You are welcome to bring friends and family members with you - please ensure you select the correct amount of tickets when you book (1 for you and 1 for each guest).
