How to get there - the postcode brings you to the wrong place
*The postcode SW7 2AZ on online maps brings you to the wrong place, so:
- Go to South Kensington Tube, Imperial College exit
- Come out of tube and turn left onto Exhibition Road
- Turn immediately left onto Imperial College Road
- Walk about 200m to Queen's Lawn on the right hand side of the road
- There is a beautiful old tower in the middle of Queen's Lawn you can't miss it
- The Sherfield building is diagonally opposite you on the corner of Queen's Lawn.
- Go into the building, go immediately right into to the Queen's Tower Room
- And you will find opendata teacamp and a nice cup of tea
