Getting to Eurohaptics 2016

Eurohaptics 2016 will take place at South Kensington Campus of Imperial College London.
The nearest underground (metro) station is South Kensington (Piccadilly line, District and Circle lines). South Kensington station is easily accessible from major London airports (Heathrow and Gatwick) and major train stations. London 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. You can use Oyster card to travel to/from Heathrow/Gatwick/City airport and all station in London zones. We recommend to purchase an Oyster card which is very practical in London and will normally save your travel costs.
