How to get to St Julians:
by train - from London Charing Cross (4 per hour) and most Kent stations (1 or 2 per hour). Sevenoaks is 3
0 minutes from London. Taxi journey to St Julians about 10 mins. There is also bus 401 [click at the top for 'Sunday' and 'All Stops'] 2-hourly from Tonbridge or Sevenoaks stations to Morleys Roundabout - pleasant 25 minute walk to St Julians along bridle-path (see Ord.Surv.map or try TN15 0RX on Google maps). Please check time of last train back to your home station, and also if there are delays because of railway maintenance - see http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/planmyjourney
by car - Sevenoaks is near Junc.5 on the M25 [if coming from the east turn off the M26 at Wrotham Heath - you cannot leave the M26 for Sevenoaks at M25-J5]. Follow signs to Sevenoaks and go through town heading south. About a mile out of town pass the White Hart pub on R, take next L - St Julian Road. 3/4 mile along this turn R into St Julians Club drive, then after 3/4 mile park above or below tennis courts. House entrance is a little further, by weeping willow tree. There is a map at www.stjulians.co.uk - postcode is TN15 0RX [note - if you are using SatNav and approaching from the south via the village of Underriver, please do not turn left at the north end of Underriver - it's a farm track and blocked by gates etc.; carry on to the top of the hill and then turn left - St Julians driveway is half way between that junction and River Hill]
