Chandra in flight How to get to MSSL, and accommodation nearby

MSSL lies approximately 40 miles to the south-west of London, in the centre of the Guildford/Dorking/Horsham `triangle'. Heathrow Airport is about an hour's drive away and Gatwick Airport about 40 minutes. The nearest mainline train stations with fast connections to London are Guildford (35 mins to Waterloo) and Gatwick (30 mins to Victoria on the Gatwick Express). There are also mainline stations at Dorking and Horsham. For information about train times and connections, why not try the National Rail travel information service?

A taxi ride is the best option from the nearest mainline train stations. For those travelling to MSSL by car, road maps of the surrounding area are available (.pdf document). If you need any advice about the best route to take, please contact the local organisers or take a look at the RAC route planner.

If you intend to stay overnight locally, we recommend that you book your own accommodation as early as possible. MSSL is in a rural location, about 10 miles away from the nearest towns. Hotels are available in Guildford and Dorking; bed and breakfast, and limited hotel accommodation is available in the surrounding villages. To help you with your booking, details of possible local accommodation and a location map are available (.pdf documents).
