Technical Briefing Center

What you need to know about your upcoming visit

We’re located in the heart of London’s financial district, an area known as The City. If you’re flying, Heathrow and London City airports are your best options. Public transportation is the quickest way to get to F5 from Heathrow (Heathrow Express) and London City (Docklands Light Railway).

The Briefing Center staff is here to make your visit to London both informative and enjoyable. Contact your F5 Account Executive or Business Development Manager if there’s anything we do to help out with your planning or while you’re with us.
