Location and directions
Our offices are located in Hook, Hampshire. Just off Junction 5 of the M3 Motorway. Hook is nestled in the far NE corner of the Hampshire, Surrey & Berkshire borders just 35 miles south-west of hustle and bustle of London.
The venue is within easy reach from either the M3 or M4 motorways. Hook is also served by the south coast mainline from London Waterloo rail station. There are a minimum of two stopping trains per hour from and to London Waterloo and a faster direct service to the nearby town of Basingstoke.
Arriving By Car
Directions will be given at the time of booking.
Arriving By Train
We are on the main line from London (Waterloo) and trains serve Hook station up to four times an hour. Waterloo has a fast service to Basingstoke where there are plenty of taxis that will get you to our location quickly and easily.
There is a fast service to Basingstoke but you will need to catch a taxi back to Hook (15 minutes). Or you can choose the stopping service to Basingstoke which stops at Hook. If you intend to walk to our offices from the train station, we are about 1 mile from the Hook station. Therefore we would recommend a taxi or an early arrival if you wish to walk.
Arriving By Plane
We are equidistant between Southampton and London (Heathrow) airports. If you are coming from outside of the UK the service from Heathrow is quicker, more direct and better served. However if you are travelling from the UK or Ireland we often use Southampton as it serves those regions very well, is quick and inexpensive. You can get semi-direct trains to Hook from straight from the Airport via Basingstoke.
If you are travelling from Heathrow a taxi is the quickest and easiest way to get to us. It is much cheaper to pre-book a taxi to collect you from the airport. Taking a train journey from Heathrow airport is generally not recommended as you will need to change several times to get to us.
If you want to stay overnight before or after the event, there are a number of local hotels less than two minutes walk away from the venue: –
Very close – Walking distance
Basingstoke Country hotel – Cheap and close, but don’t expect much
Close – About one mile away
Both these offer adequate accommodation at a reasonable price and food and drink in a pub style environment.
Luxury hotels – Nearby
High quality luxury hotels. Tylney Hall is an old Manor House with a rich history. The Four Seasons is more contemporary but very high quality.
