The planned HS2 ‘super-hub’ at Old Oak Common is due to be the largest new railway station ever built in the UK. It will provide quick access from White City to Heathrow Airport, Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester.
There are secure bike parking areas at the south side of the I-HUB and in front of the Wood Lane studios by the car park. You can order free cycling maps of White City here. For connections from South Kensington, please see our recommended cycling route (avoiding hills!) between our campuses, using designated cycleways.

*Although these routes are recommended, you should always be aware of local conditions and only cycle where you feel comfortable and safe.
Imperial’s White City Campus is next to the Westway (A40), a key route into the heart of London. It also takes you outwards to the North Circular ring road (A406) surrounding central London, and beyond to the M25 encircling Greater London.
There is parking for registered visitors and maintenance contractors who need to access the site. There are also permanent parking spaces for staff and students based at the White City Campus who are registered disabled.
The closest airport is Heathrow. From there, a taxi takes about 35 minutes to reach the campus. By public transport, you can use the Heathrow Express and the tube to get to Wood Lane station in about 45 minutes.
