Royal Holloway is located in a beautiful part of Surrey, a county famed for its historic market towns, parks and woodlands, and a lively cultural sporting scene. The university campus is located very close to Runnymede, where the Magna Carta was sealed in 1215. Nearby are Windsor Great Park, adjoining Windsor Castle, and Wentworth Golf Club, home of the annual PGA Championship. Central London is easily accessible by train for a whole host of activities - trips to the shops, famous tourist attractions, galleries, theatres and nightlife.

The college campus is situated just a few minutes walk from Windsor Great Park between the villages of Englefield Green and Virginia Water, and close to the towns of Egham, Staines and Windsor.
