Travelling to Loughborough University

However, the following is an overall guide to the journey which we hope you will find helpful.

There is a direct conection using the Underground Railway from Heathrow to Londan St Pancras station. There are regular trains from St Pancras to Loughborough.

Once at Loughborough it is relatively straightforward to get to the University.

You can travel from the train station to Loughborough University by bus or taxi, as indicated on
http://www.lboro.ac.uk/about/findusrail.html.

The train station is about a 10-minute ride from campus.  You can take a taxi to campus which costs about 4.  You can also take the bus which runs about every 20 minutes.
