Lectures

Venue and Time:

All meetings, except the AGM, are held at our normal venue: District Room (Room 727), 7th Floor, London Underground Headquarters, 55 Broadway, London, SW1 0BD.


55 Broadway is located above St James Park Underground station (Circle & District Lines), see map below.



















We now understand that the redevelopment of 55 Broadway is not now going ahead and we will be able to remain at this fabulous Adams, Holden and Pearson  art-deco building for the foreseeable future.


All meetings, except the AGM, are held at our normal venue: District Room (Room 727), 7th Floor, London Underground Headquarters, 55 Broadway, London, SW1 0BD.

Access to 55 Broadway - Security:

Transport for London security rules for access to 55 Broadway require that Institution members attending an Institution lecture must report in the first instance to the reception desk, where they will be given an individual building pass

Time:

All meetings, start at 18.00hrs sharp and finish around 19.30.  A number of us retire to a local hostelry afterwards to continue on with discussions!

Members of the Permanent Way Institution and the London Underground Railway Society are also most welcome to attend our lectures.
