Optional tour:
Take a ride on full electric bus on trial at Heathrow (to and from Terminal 4)

Finding the venue:
See the second page of the PDF map downloadable here:
Another option is to take the train from Paddington to Hayes & Harlington, then the 140 bus to 'Mondial Way - Stop BL' on Bath Road, from where you walk 60 meters east along the same (south) side of Bath Road to the venue. That takes a total of about 40 min from Paddington. If coming from Heathrow Terminals 1-3, it's the 140 or other bus to 'Boltons Lane - Stop BK' on Bath Road, which takes 13 minutes. From there you cross to the south side of Bath Road and walk 80 meters east. Using the TfL Journey Planner, you'll need to use the bus stop names; otherwise it tells you there's a long walk at the end of the journey, which there's not.
