KiSmet is moving to a new venue for 2020. The location is still just west of London and has good transport links and better local amenities. The venue is Moor Hall, owned by the CIM (Chartered Institute of Marketing). https://cimmoorhall.co.uk/
Moor Hall is in the picturesque village of Cookham, Berkshire and is close to the River Thames. Moor Hall is a lovely, private K/S-friendly venue and is just 20 miles from Heathrow. Details of how to get there are set out below.
Their residential facilities are excellent, with the function space and most bedrooms all on one level with covered walkways between (handy if we get typical British weather!). Catering is prepared on-site and served fresh from the kitchen. And there is super fast wifi across the whole site. The centre also includes a fully equipped gym (but unfortunately it will be missing a certain Captain in very close fitting, but well equipped red tights).
how to get there
CIM Moor Hall Cookham Berkshire SL6 9QH Reception Telephone +44 (0)1628 427500 By train There are direct trains from London Paddington Station to Maidenhead Station which take 35 minutes. Maidenhead train station is 4 miles from Moor Hall Local taxis are available from the concourse outside the station. Since members will be arriving at approximately the same time, you may be able to share taxis. Do let us know if you would like to do this and we will put you in touch with each other. There is a local rail service from Maidenhead to Cookham station which is one mile from Moor Hall, but there is no taxi rank (as it is a small station) so you would need to be collected or walk.

From Heathrow The Heathrow Express goes directly from Heathrow to Paddington Station, where you can get a train direct to Maidenhead. There are buses from the Heathrow Airport Central Bus Station located in the central area (between Terminals 1,2 & 3) which travel to Maidenhead, and takes approximately one hour. From there, you will need to take a taxi to Cookham. It may be possible to take an Uber from Heathrow. If you prefer to take a regular black taxi, be advised this will be extremely expensive. If you’re considering this option, we strongly advise you to try to coordinate with other members to share transport and cost.
