Where to find us:

You can find us in the purpose-built, Henry Wellcome Building, which houses our main facilities and is home to the Babylab. Our new ToddlerLab is located a few doors down from the Babylab at 33 Torrington Square. Some of our Staff and students are located next door at 32 Torrington Square.

The Henry Wellcome Building is located just off Torrington Square, around the corner from the ‘Clore Management Building’ (on the path between Torrington Square and Woburn Square). Signs on either side of the doors say ‘The Wolfson Institute for Brain Function and Development’ and ‘The Henry Wellcome Building’.

If on foot
We are within walking distance from the following stations: Russell Square, Goodge Street, Euston, Euston Square, Warren Street, King's Cross and St Pancras.

If driving
We have two areas available for parking: Woburn Square and Torrington Square. Many of the streets in this area are one-way, and there is no access to either Malet Street or Torrington Square from their north ends. You must make your way to Keppel Street to get into Malet Street. From Malet Street turn right through the Birkbeck University of London gates, then left into Torrington Square (drive down the slope). Park anywhere on Torrington Square and when you arrive at the Babylab/ToddlerLab we will provide you with a temporary parking permit. If no spaces are available, it is then easier to make your way to Woburn Square via the one way systems.

Alternatively, for visits under 2-hours, there is ample (pay for) street parking in the area. Parking can be paid by calling the number on the parking signs or with JustPark, quoting the location reference on the sign. The parking bays often change between 'residents only' and 'pay for'. Please read signage carefully!

If arriving by taxi

BabyLab: Please ask the driver to drop you adjacent to 28 Woburn Square WC1H 0AA (or if the gate is locked, at the start of Woburn Square). Once at the top of the square turn right and walk up the paved slope. The Henry Wellcome Building is the building on the right. 

ToddlerLab: Please ask the driver to take you to the corner of Byng Place and Torrington Square. The ToddlerLab is a few doors down on the left. 

If you have any problems, please contact the researcher you booked with or phone us on 020 3926 1207
