Our events take place in Senate House, School of Advanced Study, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU.  Click here for Senate House map.

Senate House is situated in the heart of Bloomsbury at the south end of the University precinct, next to the British Museum and very close to the British Library and the West End. It is surrounded on all sides by bars, restaurants, cafes, bookshops, tube stations, bus stops and things to see and do.  Many of central London’s key attractions and most exciting neighbourhoods are within walking distance, including Covent Garden, Soho, Oxford Street, Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square and the River Thames.


Senate House benefits from excellent transport connections to London’s tube network, and can be reached from London’s five airports (Heathrow, Luton, Stansted, City and Gatwick) in less than an hour. It is within a few minutes’ walk of major national rail stations Euston and King’s Cross, and the International Eurostar terminus at St Pancras.
