Travel & Accommodation

MSSL lies approximately 40 miles to the south-west of London, on Holmbury hill between Dorking and Guildford. Heathrow Airport is about an hour's drive away and Gatwick Airport about 40 minutes. The nearest largest mainline train stations with connections to London are Guildford and Dorking, whereas if you are coming from the south (e.g. Universities of Sussex, Southampton etc) it is best to go to Horsham. All three towns (Guildford, Dorking and Horsham) are about about half an hour from MSSL by car. Taxi ranks are available at these stations, so there is no need to prebook. For information about train times and connections, please refer to the National Rail travel information service.
