Site Visit Logistics

Bring boots – all other PPE will be provided.

Coaches will pick up and drop off at the Imperial College London campus. We will gather outside Ethos Sports Centre on Prince’s Gardens (North Side). The timings are approximate, and subject to traffic. The nearby South Kensington tube station is on the Picadilly line, which goes straight to Heathrow and is easier than getting a cab.  

Wed 12 July: Crossness STW. Meet at the Imperial College London at 08.30. Lunch will be provided. We will depart Crossness at 15.30, arriving back at ICL at 17:00. The Crossness site is distant and hiring taxis can be complicated – if you need to leave earlier than this, we must unfortunately recommend against this site visit.

Thur 13 July: Reading STW and Basingstoke STWMeet at the Imperial College London at 08.30. Lunch will be provided. We will depart Basingstoke at 16:00, arriving at Heathrow Airport at approx 17:00 and back to ICL at approx 17.45.
