VENUE: Please note change

We've managed to secure at the last minute an even better venue in Molesey, which is much closer to the station, a pub and a fab second-hand book shop. So we will now be here:

Royal British Legion
Saint Mary's Road
East Molesey
Surrey KT8 0ST


N.B. The venue isn't quite where Google Maps place it. You'll find it closer to the entrance to Matham Road than is indicated (by the junction with Walton lane). It's right next to the music shop on the corner. If you're early, it's well worth wandering along the high street (Walton Lane) because you'll find the second hand book shop about half a dozen shops along.

Getting There By Train:

If you come by train, Hampton Court Station is about a 10 minute walk away from the venue. There is also a taxi office at the station (Claremont Cars: 020 8979 8866), or you can hop on the 411 bus (walk towards Hampton Court Palace and you'll find the bus stop and ask them to tell you when you're at Matham Road).

Getting There By Car:

There's free parking in the nearby public car park. You get to it by driving along the high street (B369, Walton Road) and taking the very small and not very obvious turning just by the Conservative Club (with big Union Jack outside), opposite FW Paine.

Quizzers coming from outside the capital should get onto the M3 heading toward London (if by way of the M25, at Jct. 12) and come off at Jct. 1 (Sunbury) following signs for Kempton Park and Hampton Court. Take the bridge over the Thames by the Palace (Hampton Court Way) and get onto Walton Lane (B369) via Creek/Bridge Road (B3379) which can be accessed by taking the second right turn after crossing the Thames.
