Meeting details:
Attendees should report to the reception at 102 Petty France which is opposite St James’ Park tube station and is close to St James’ Park and Westminster Abbey. The building has 2 front doors (and sometimes they are both working) that are close together, and they both open onto the same reception area. The building is very large and grey and is next door to the army barracks. Attendees should inform the security guards that they are there to see Kathy Turner.

Get off the tube at St James’ Park station, look on the wall for the blue signs and follow the signs that say "To Park and Broadway"
Go through the ticket barrier, turn left immediately and walk to the street. Do not walk past the shops.
There should be a zebra crossing – please cross the road, and then the building facing you is the Ministry of Justice so you just need to walk to the entrance.

There is a Costa Coffee concession within the building if you require any refreshments.
