Places to eat, places to stay, things to see...

There’s lots of places to eat and drink on campus. If you fancy a sit-down meal, head to the Hub or Founder’s Dining Hall, or if you're on the go, grab a sandwich from the Boilerhouse Cafe, Cafe on The Square or Tommy’s Kitchen in the Students’ Union.

Fancy going for a walk? Royal Holloway has a beautiful, scenic campus with lots of lovely walking routes. When you arrive, you can pick up a walks leaflet from your Hall reception or Founder’s reception, and then  head out and explore.

Windsor Great Park and Virginia Water Lake are also right on our doorstep. A ten minute walk will take you to one of the largest parks in Surrey, with stunning views and charming, intimate walks.
