Getting to St Mary's from the airport

London Heathrow

The cheapest route to campus is by bus. From Heathrow Central Bus Station take the 285 (towards Kingston) or the X26 (towards Croydon) and get off at the Teddington Broad Street stop. From the same bus stop you can then take the 33 towards Hammersmith. This journey will only take a few minutes and you should get off at the "St Mary's University" stop on Waldegrave Road.

For route and bus stop maps please see the Transport for London website  and enter the number of the bus you would like to take.

You can also get to campus by taxi  (approximately £40).

London Gatwick

Take a train from the South Terminal to Clapham Junction Railway Station. At Clapham Junction, change to a train towards Strawberry Hill Railway Station.

St Mary's is a five minute walk from Strawberry Hill station. Turn left when you leave the station, then walk past Premier Wine and the Post Office on your left and take the second road on your right, which is Waldegrave Gardens. At the end of Waldegrave Gardens, turn right onto Waldegrave Road and St Mary's main reception will be on your left.
