The Venue

Moving ahead with Hydrogen is taking place at Illuminate, the Science Museum’s dedicated conference venue, on levels 4 (main conference hall) and 5 (networking and refreshments area) of the museum in South Kensington, London.

Registration and delegate badges

Registration will take place at the Science Museum Group entrance foyer between 09:15 and 10:00hrs.

After 10:00hrs, later arrivals will be directed to the lift to level 5 and registration will take place there.

A cloakroom and bag-drop are provided on level 5.

Getting There

Access to Illuminate is via the Science Museum’s Group entrance – adjacent to Imperial’s car park control barrier on Imperial College Road – and then via lift to level 5.

Ways to get there

By Tube

The closest tube is South Kensington.  

Exit via the Victorian underground walkway (to the right as you exit through ticket barriers), and follow this right to the end (signposted Science Museum and Imperial College London). 

Please note this route involves steps and is not yet suitable for accessible access. 

The Science Museum group entrance is a 20-second walk from the South Kensington Underground walkway steps that emerge onto Exhibition Road.

Turn left at the top of the steps, left almost immediately again into College Road, the Group Entrance is then on the left, opposite Imperial’s car park control hut.

By Car

Parking in South Kensington can be costly. Imperial College does have a car park, but it is usually full in term time. An alternative is Kingston House Garage, a short walk from the venue across Prince’s Gardens and Exhibition Road.
