Open Tech 2005 - Location

Should places become available on the day, an email will go to the mailing list. Please don't show up without a ticket.

There is very, very limited parking around the venue, although you may be able to park elsewhere and follow the tube instructions below.

OpenTech 2005 will take place on July 23rd at Imperial College's Reynolds Building, part of the Charing Cross hospital campus in Hammersmith, London. Map from

Please note that there is no food available in the venue (although the bar will be open). As a result, if you're going to feel hungry between 11:30 and 6:30, you will either want to bring sandwiches or you will have to leave the venue to get food at a local takeaway (directions will be available)

The nearest tube station is Hammersmith (Piccadilly and District lines). Directions and alternative modes of transport are available from

Full address:

	Reynolds Building
	St. Dunstan's Road
	W6 8RP


From Barons Court Tube:

(probably the simplest, though you don't go past so many shops)
Turn right out of the tube station, then immediately turn right again down Margravine Gardens, past the entrance to the cemetery. Then take either the first or the second left onto St Dunstan's Road - Open Tech is first on the corner on the left, before you get to the entrances to Radiotherapy and A&E.

From Hammersmith Tube:

(If you've arrived at the Hammersmith and City station somehow, cross the road and go into Broadway Sho pping Centre, then follow the rest of these instructions.) If you come out of the tube and can see WH S miths, turn left and go past the central pillar where the cashpoints are. If you can see a Tesco, kind of skirt around its boundaries (or go in and grab a snack for later), then leave the shopping centre by going left at The Trout pub. Go through the subway and leave by the (largely unmarked) Exit 14 for Ful ham Palace Road - which goes left where Exit 12 goes right (or just follow the signs for "Charing Cross Hospital").

Continue along Fulham Palace Road (away from the shopping centre) until you reach the big crossroads wi th Winslow Rd and St Dunstan's Road (this is where most of the convenience stores with "Link" cashpoint s are). Go left along St Dunstan's Road, and Open Tech is next on your right after the entrances to A&E and Radiotherapy.

From outside London:

...all of which of course assumes you can get to either of these tube stations. You can get reasonably up-to-date travel information from the London Transport page, in conjunction with either their standard ma p or their Javascript Real Time Disruption Map (di srupted lines appear in their normal colour, working lines are shown in grey).

If you're coming from outside London, at time of writing (1pm Friday July 22), Hammersmith and Barons C ourt are both readily accessible via the District Line from Victoria, Charing Cross (one stop to get to Embankment on the Bakerloo line), Waterloo (ditto), and London Bridge (cat ch the Jubilee line to change at Westminster).

If the Hammersmith and City line is still out of action, then take the Bakerloo line from Paddington or Marylebone to either Embankment on the District line (as above), or swap to the Jubilee or Victoria lines (at Baker St or Oxford Circus) if you don't mind changing one more time.

From Kings Cross or Euston you should be able to take the Victoria line to Victoria (then the District line from there), though you also have the more roundabout option of taking the Bank bran ch of the Northern line to the winding subterranean metropolis of Bank/ Monument station. Changing at B ank is also a possibility if you catch the Central line from Liverpool Street. Hope that's clear ed up any questions you may have, anyway.
