Questions about attending and participating?

Travel and Lodging

Trains

The London Underground (people call it "tube" here) network in London is usually the most cost effective and reliable form of transport within Central London. We recommended doing a Google Map or City Mapper search before travel on the day in case of late notice engineering works.

🚃 The closest step-free National Rail / London Underground station is Liverpool Street (National Rail, Metropolitan, Hammersmith and City, Circle and Central Line, Overground, TfL Rail), approximately 15 minutes from the venue.

🚃 Other stations close to the venue include Old Street and Moorgate on the Northern Line and Great Northern. There are also several bus stops within a one or two-block radius.

🚧 TfL Rail and National Rail are suspended over the weekend between Liverpool Street and Shenfield with longer alternatives via replacement bus and London Underground

Registered service animals are welcome on all London trains, buses and the London Underground.

Fees vary according to zones, the venue is located in zone 1. Get an Oyster card or use a contactless debit or credit card so you can have a daily cap on your fees. Alternatively visitors by train from outside London may find it cheaper to purchase a one-day Travelcard combined with their train ticket.

There are also buses running throughout London. This is a good way to travel to take in London's landmarks (if it goes past any). It's also very cost effective to travel on buses at just £1.50 per journey (including interchange within an hour).

For more information about routes, etc:

Eurostar

🚄 Several European cities are connected to London St Pancras in Central London by Eurostar directly including Paris, Brussels, Lille, Rotterdam and Amsterdam. Book in advance for cheaper fares than flying. Consider this option for a lower carbon footprint when traveling from Central Europe.

Airports

There are 6 airports serving London (Heathrow, City, Stansted, Luton, Gatwick, Southend), most of them are not in Greater London but have a reasonable connection to downtown London by train or coach (e.g. National Express). We don't recommend flying to and from Southend due to distance and scheduled engineering works. Trains to the airports can cost up to £18, please check before you budget for your travel.

Coaches

By coach there are two popular nationwide companies including National Express and Megabus. Some of these stop close to the venue at Liverpool Street whilst most will terminate a the main coach in station Victoria.

Uber

🚙 They operate in London

Taxi

🚕 Cabs

Cycling

You can find to hire bikes everywhere. People have different opinions about cycling in the streets in London, it depends on your skill level. Please decide for yourself and plan your route in advance.

🚲 There are several National Cycle Routes near to the venue. Bicycle parking is located outside the venue. Plan your cycle route on CycleStreets.

If you bring your own bike, make sure you lock it well. There is no indoor parking at the venue.

Parking

There is no parking at the venue itself, but there are several car parks within a short walk. Car parking costs range from approximately £25 to £80 per day depending on the car park used. Also, note that the office is within the London congestion charge area and Ultra Low Emissions Zone. There is no Congestion charge on weekends.

Hotels

🏫 Staying in central London (Zone 1) is not gonna be cheap, you can consider staying in Zone 2-3. They are usually cheaper and travelling by public transport is not bad. Maybe you can consider the docklands area (East London) where there are DLR trains that connected to Bank station.
