London School of Economics & Political Science
The London School of Economics campus is at the bottom of Kingsway, just off Aldwych and about 5 minutes walk from Holborn and Temple underground stations.
It is also well served by buses.
Because Wine Education Service courses and tastings take place in a number of buildings on the campus, joining instructions are sent to all clients before each event.
