Planning your visit

Travel in London

Before you come check out the Transport for London website which has advice for visitors: https://tfl.gov.uk/travel-information/visiting-london/

Always check out whether you can walk to your destination. Sometimes places are surprisingly close. The London A-Z either online, http://www.az.co.uk/?nid=354 , or hard copy will help you. The Transport for London website also lets you plan journeys, which includes a walking option.

Travel information for each of the conference venues can be found on their websites:

University of Westminster: https://www.westminster.ac.uk/about-us/our-locations/maps-and-directions/regent-street

Bishopsgate Institute: http://www.bishopsgate.org.uk/Visit-Us/How-to-Find-us

London Metropolitan Archives: https://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/things-to-do/london-metropolitan-archives/visitor-information/Pages/how-to-get-here.aspx

 

Accommodation 

Pride Week in London will mean hotels and B&Bs are very busy so book sooner rather than later.

The Pride website has a helpful listing:
