Maps and Instructions

London Underground map.
Getting to Imperial College. (do not go in the tunnel if you travel to South Kensington tube station.)

The simplest way to get here:

Travel to the tube station Gloucester Road  (District, Circle, and Piccadilly Lines).

When you exit the station, turn left along Gloucester Road, crossing Cromwell Road 50 meters from the exit.

After 4-5 minutes walk along Gloucester Road, turn right to Queen's Gate Terrace.

This is a short road leading directly to the entrance of the Huxley Building, at 180 Queen's Gate. We are on floor 6.
Getting to King's College.
Getting to QMW. From Stepney Green tube go left along Mile End Road for about 200 metres.

From Mile End tube go west along Mile End Road for about 300 metres.
Getting to UCL.  The nearest tube station is `Euston square', but `Warren Street' and `Euston' are also quite close to the college.
