If necessary, consider arriving a day early and/or leaving the day after retreat ends. Please note: It is not possible to stay extra nights at Woldingham school before or after the retreat. If staying extra nights please make arrangements to do so in London or a nearby town to Woldingham such at Caterham, Oxted or Croydon.
The airports near Woldingham School are Gatwick (20 minutes away) and Heathrow (45 minutes away). You are required to arrive at the retreat site between 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm on the first day of retreat and depart no earlier than lunch on the last day. Please adjust your flights accordingly.

Woldingham School is located south-east of London, inside the M25, just 10 minutes from Junction 6 and with direct trains to London from Woldingham station every 30 minutes. Woldingham station is on the Oxted/East Grinstead/Uckfield line, 35 minutes from both London stations (Victoria and London Bridge); it may be necessary to change at East Croydon from London Bridge. Woldingham station is in the school grounds, about 1.5 miles from the School and, if you have the time and energy, the walk along the school drive is scenically rewarding. A shuttle vehicle will be available from the station to the retreat site approximately every 30 minutes between 1:00-5:00 pm. (Please wait in the private car park via the small exit on platform one.) Alternatively, the local taxi service, Catax, can be contacted at 01883 345151.

From M25: Junction 6 of the M25 motorway is approximately 4 miles from the school; at this point join the A22 northbound (signposted to ‘Caterham’ then ‘Croydon’ and ‘London’). At Wapses Lodge roundabout (first roundabout on A22 off Junction 6) take the Woldingham exit. After passing the stables on the left, please slow down and look out for buildings and a viaduct on the right (approximately 0.5 miles after Wapses Lodge roundabout). At the school sign, take the road leading under the viaduct arch on the right-hand-side. The school drive is 2 miles long.
From London: Take the A23 southbound. When you reach the large junction at Purley, turn left onto the A22 signposted to East Grinstead. Follow it through Whyteleafe. You will reach Wapses Lodge roundabout. Continue as directions above.
