About the Silwood Park campus

Silwood Park is located about 25 miles West of Central London, near the village of Sunninghill in Ascot, Berkshire. Situated in about 100ha of natural parkland, it has been part of Imperial College since 1947. 

It was first famous as a centre for applied entomology before developing a world-wide reputation as a centre for excellence in pure and applied ecology. Since the 1990s research interests have expanded to include evolution, biodiversity and conservation.

The campus contains all the features one would expect of a leading centre for life sciences research  as well as a few additional, unexpected attributes.
