Go Behind the Scenes at White City Campus

Free walking tours on offer to people living or working in the area

White City Campus from the air

If you have always wondered what goes on behind the doors of Imperial College’s huge White City Campus, you have the opportunity to find out by exploring the site on a free walking tour which is open to people living or working in Shepherd’s Bush as well as staff and students.

These tours, open to everyone over the age of 16, take place on the second Wednesday of each month, with the next scheduled for October 12, November 9 and December 14.

The tours include:

A trip to the Sir Michael Uren Biomedical Engineering Research Hub for a bird’s eye view of White City
The opportunity to learn more about the campus’s community engagement work and the air quality research of the WellHome team
A visit to the Scale Space, home to leading scale ups and innovative businesses
A visit to one of the research teams (currently the Environmental Research Group)

The tours take place from 1pm till 2pm, following an accessible step-free route, and begin at The Invention Rooms cafe at 68 Wood Lane. Free tea and coffee is available for 30 minutes before the tour starts.

Though these tours are free, you do have to book your place in advance. To find out more and secure your place, visit this link.


Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact info@neighbournet.com and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
