Information for Association Day, October 3, 2009
Hilton National Hotel, Cobham, Surrey
On Association morning you will be met by Committee Members in the entrance hall of the hotel and given an envelope with your name on it. This needs to be returned at the end of the Business Meeting with your badge, dues and donations in it.
Anyone coming to the Association Meeting for the first time should make themselves known to a Committee Member on duty.
The hotel is located in Surrey, close to the Cobham turn off on the A3 road, and less than a mile from junction 10 of the M25. It is about an hour from London by car. When reaching the Cobham turn off, take the A245 road, in the direction of Woking, Byfleet or Walton, and at the first traffic light, turn LEFT into Seven Hills Road SOUTH which only leads to the hotel. There is ample parking.
There are several Railway Stations nearby but the two closest are Cobham/Stoke D’Abernon or Weybridge, coming from London Waterloo. If you wish to come from London Victoria, you need to change at Clapham Junction for the local stations. There are taxis available at both local stations to meet every train and the ride to the hotel is approximately £9 from Weybridge and about £10 from Cobham/Stoke D’Abernon. It is not possible to avoid a taxi from the stations to the hotel. See local taxi information below.
From London Heathrow Airport – taking a taxi to the hotel is the most direct way and will cost approximately £40 if booked in advance with one of the local taxi companies listed below. It is good to check the price with the taxi driver before starting your journey. Alternatively, use bus and train by taking the bus service to Woking, which calls outside each airport terminal every 30 minutes during the daytime. Then from Woking Rail Station, take a train to Weybridge. Continue to the hotel by taxi.
Or, from the central bus station take Bus 285 to Feltham Train Station then the train to Weybridge Train Station. Continue to the hotel by taxi. (This is quicker and cheaper than travelling via Woking Train Station)
From London Gatwick Airport – take the London train and change at Clapham Junction for trains to Weybridge or Cobham/Stoke D’Abernon. Continue to the hotel by taxi.
There are taxis at both Weybridge and Cobham Stations to meet every train, and the fare to the hotel is approximately £8 from Weybridge and £10 from Cobham.
From Stansted Airport – take the train to Tottenham Hale, change to underground Picadilly Line, go all the way to Vauxhall; change to train for Weybridge. The return ticket in 2008 was £33.50 including the underground. There is also an express bus service that takes you from the Airport to Victoria.
There are taxis at both Weybridge and Cobham Stations to meet every train, and the fare is approximately £8 from Weybridge and £10 from Cobham.
