How to get to MSSL

This map shows how to reach MSSL from Gatwick Airport or the M25. Holmbury St. Mary is sign-posted from the A25, and MSSL is signed from the village. The roads up to the laboratory are narrow, so do not be put off!

Alternatively, you can plan a route to the laboratory at Map 24  (our postcode is RH5 6NT), or print a map of the local area from the Ordnance Survey web site

All of these hotels are beyond reasonable walking distance (unless you're extremely keen!), so we recommend you arrange a hire car or taxis. If you anticipate problems with transport, please let us know.
