South Kensington and Gloucester Road stations are the closest London Underground (Tube) stations to the conference locations. The Piccadilly Line, Circle, and District lines can be accessed from both stations, making it easy to get to the conference from London Paddington, King's Cross, Victoria, and London Heathrow Airport. A full Tube map and real-time information for the London Underground is available on the TFL Website .
Want to reduce your carbon footprint and bike to the conference? Santander Bikes are available (and plentiful!) in South Kensington, with a docking station just outside Baden-Powell House. Please visit the TFL website for more information.
Conference materials can be provided in large print on request.
