Getting here

  • The festival activities will be held at UCL Bloomsbury, Gower Street, Bloomsbury, London, WC1E 6BT

Travelling to London

  • London is well-served by transport links, both for travelling to and from London from the UK, Europe and the wider world, as well as for getting around the city. 
  • UCL has locations across the city with the main campus locations in central and east London areas.
  • There are easy connections to UCL from London’s global hub airports at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted and you will find that London’s extensive public transport system is convenient and easy to use.

Travelling to UCL

  • Whilst it is possible to travel to UCL by car, parking is typically difficult and expensive and so we would generally recommend using public transport to get to us.
  • Please see our website for the wide range of public transport options for getting to UCL.

Check before you leave

  • We would always recommend planning your journey to UCL and checking the status of public transport networks before you depart. 
  • Transport for London offers an excellent Journey Planner Tool at www.tfl.gov.uk that can help you plan your journey.
