A student leading a campus tour

Our campus tours are a great opportunity to find out more about life at our South Kensington Campus – big enough to house some fantastic facilities but not so big you will feel lost in the crowd.

You'll be guided round our South Kensington Campus by a current student so it's also a chance to quiz them about their own Imperial study experience.

These tours are for invididual visitors and their guests. If you're interested in visits for schools, please see our Campus visits for school groups page.


Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

We're not able to run campus tours at the moment due to safety concerns regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

As soon as it's safe to do so, we'll get our tours back up and running. Please use the form below to sign up for news updates and be amongst the first to hear when bookings re-open. In the meantime, you can read more about our tours below.

About our guided tours

Our guided tours are offered by current students. The tour is conducted in English so to make the most of it, we recommend that you have an intermediate level of English as we're unfortunately not able to provide translators.
