Accommodation and getting here

The conference sessions will be held in the central London location at the Strand Campus of King’s College London. The postal code for this area is WC2, so accommodation with this postcode should be not too far from the conference venue. Other postal codes that may be of interest are WC1 and SE1.

There is a huge range of accommodation available in London, from cheap hostels to five-star hotels. It is cheaper to go outside the centre of London, but then transport costs would need to be factored in.

The closest tube station to the Strand Campus is Temple, however Charing Cross, Covent Garden, and Holborn are all within easy walking distance. The Transport for London website is the comprehensive source for the latest information about public transport within London.
