As noted elsewhere, the simplest way to get to the British Standards Institute is to take the underground to Gunnersbury station. However, be aware that when traveling from Gunnersbury, there are both underground trains and the cross London rail service. The latter is not part of the underground system and it is easy to get on the wrong service. The trains do have their destination on a panel on the front of the train. Another option for getting between BSI and central London is buses, which are frequent on Chiswick High Street.
