Venue and Travel


Senate House is in Bloomsbury next to the British Museum and Russell Square. The building is a Portland stone art deco skyscraper – nevertheless, it can be easily missed when walking nearby.


The entrance to Senate House is under the central tower. Go in to the South Block entrance, through the revolving door and take the lift or stairs to the 4th floor.

Before 9:30 AM the lift will only travel to the third floor – please take the stairs to the fourth floor from there if you arrive early.
