Head Office Swindon

Medical Research Council
Polaris House
North Star Avenue



Swindon is served by First Great Western services between London Paddington, Bristol and South Wales.

Polaris House is two minutes walk from Swindon station.

Instead of taking the main exit out of the station, head for platforms 1 and 3, and go through the ticket barrier next to the newsagent. Go up the steps and across the footbridge. Polaris House is the building to your left as you descend the steps.


From most approach routes, follow signs for ‘Town Centre’. Then look out for signs for ‘North Star’. When you come off the dual carriageway and into North Star you will see Swindon College on your left. Take the second exit (the one after the college). At the next roundabout (with the station and car park in front of you) turn left into the Polaris House main entrance road.

Visitor parking is located outside the main reception, but please note that visitor parking is limited and where possible visitors should travel by train.
