If you use SatNav (SL4 2JN), it will almost certainly direct you to the Battersea Dogs Home which is just on the opposite side of the road to the entrance to St John's Beaumont. Please park in the car park behind the tennis courts or on the grass alongside the drive and come to reception.
The nearest station is Egham. Trains from Waterloo and Clapham Junction. When you get off the train, walk along the platform, over the footbridge and out the gap in the brick wall into the station car park. The taxi rank is right there. Ask for St John's Beaumont (the school not the hotel); the journey takes less than 10-minutes and the fare is about £7.
Heathrow is about 6-miles away. You can take a taxi, although enquire about the price - it is expensive. Or there is a regular bus (No.8) from Heathrow Central Bus Station (Terminals 1,2,3) and Terminal
5 to Priest Hill (the bus stop is at the entrance to St John's Beaumont) which takes about 50-minutes.
From Gatwick, take the train to Clapham Junction and then change for the train to Egham (see By Train above).
If you need help arranging accommodation the night before (Sunday 14th October), please get in touch.
