RE: Minos 02
sorry Penny missed the directions for train.....
By RailThere are frequent services from London Waterloo to Egham
(35 minutes); Woking to Egham (35 minutes, change at Weybridge) and Reading to
Egham (40 minutes). Services at weekends, especially those on Sunday, are less
frequent than on weekdays.
By Foot from EghamThe College is just over a mile from Egham
Station, about 20 minutes' walk. Turn right out of the station along Station
road and walk about 100 yards to the T-Junction and the traffic lights. Turn
left at the junction and follow the road up to the large roundabout; go left up
Egham Hill. The main College entrance is on the left about a mile from the
roundabout, after the second footbridge.
By Bus from EghamLondon Country buses 441 and 443 (Staines to
Slough) stop near the station and at the College main entrance. There is also a
College bus service, but tickets for this must be obtained in advance:
they are available from the College shop, and also from the Budgens store in
Egham. The College bus, like the taxis, leaves from the main car park adjacent
to the station.
By Taxi from EghamThere is a taxi rank immediately behind Egham
station in the main station car park; the A2B/Gemini Cars taxi offices can be
found at 50, Station Road on the opposite side to the station, and about 200
yards from the station in the direction of Egham town centre. A2B taxis can also
be booked by telephone: call 01784 432222; other nearby taxi companies include
Allpoint Cars on 01784 432468 and Arrow Cars on 01784 436533.
Taxis are available from Heathrow airport, 8 miles away, but can be
expensive. It is far better to book a taxi in advance (eg from A2B - see above),
in which case a fixed fare (currently £16-00) will be charged. Alternatively
take bus number 441 from Heathrow Central to the College, or go by tube to
Richmond and then take a train to Egham.
are starting around 10.30/11.00am (coffee / registration) on saturday. We
have now taken the firewall down so the website should be back to
anyone has any problems with directions then give me a call on 07833
Hope to see you all tomorrow
