Arriving by plane
From Heathrow Airport: take the Underground (Piccadilly Line) to Russell Square Station (55 minutes travelling time).
From Gatwick Airport: take a National Rail train to Victoria Station (journey time 40 minutes) and then by Underground, Victoria line to Green Park, then Piccadilly Line northbound to Russell Square Station (journey time 25 minutes).
Both airports are some distance from central London and a taxi is not recommended for the whole journey. However, if you have to travel by taxi, establish the cost before you get in.
From Russell Square Station, the campus is only a five minute walk. Turn left out of the station on Bernard Street, walk along the northern edge of Russell Square and then turn into Bedford Way. The IOE is on your left.

There is a direct Eurostar train connection to London St Pancras International from Brussels Midi Station (journey time 2 hours) and Paris Gare du Nord (journey time 2h15). From Amsterdam Central Station the journey time is 4h30 (change trains at Brussels Midi).
From King's Cross St Pancras, take the Underground, (Piccadilly line) to Russell Square Station (1 stop).
From King’s Cross St Pancras the IOE is about a 20-25 minute walk.
Tube stations, within a 5 to 15-minute walk, include: Euston; Euston Square; Goodge Street; Russell Square; Tottenham Court Road and Warren Street.

There are plenty of taxis operating in London. Taxis in London can be hailed on the street or pre-booked in advance by telephone.
Fares are metered, and there is a minimum charge of £2.40. Additional charges apply when you take a black cab from Heathrow or book by telephone. Many black cabs accept payment by credit or debit card but check with the driver before the trip starts. Card payments attract additional charges. See the TFL taxi fares page for further information. You can tip taxi drivers as much as you like, but most people round up to the nearest pound.
