Located in the center of London, South Kensignton Campus is well served by a public transport.
From Heathrow Airport Take the Underground train (Piccadilly Line) to either South Kensington or Gloucester Road stations (approximately 50 minutes journey time).
From Gatwick Airport Take a British Rail train to Victoria station (journey time 40 minutes) and then by Underground train (Circle or District Line - westbound) to either South Kensington or Gloucester Road stations (approximately 5 minutes journey time).
Both airports are some distance from central London and a taxi is not recommended for the whole journey. If you do choose to take a taxi you are advised to establish the cost before you get in.
By Underground (Metro)
Travel to either South Kensington or Gloucester Road stations, which are on the Piccadilly, Circle and District lines.
The London Underground is the most convenient way of getting to South Kensington Campus by public transport, and to and from the airports, main-line train stations etc. Unless your journey is one-off you are strongly advised to purchase an Oyster Card, which is a pre-pay card that you can use on all London underground and overground trains and buses. An Oyster Card avoids the need to queue for tickets and dramatically reduces the cost of each journey. You can obtain an Oyster Card in advance or can purchase one at most underground stations.
