Conference venue (Queen Mary, Mile End Campus)

Queen Mary is a multi-faculty university about 15 minutes east of Central London. It is on a campus site bordered by Regents Canal and close to Docklands.

The venue is easily accessible by public transport. It is within a five minute walk of both Mile End Underground station (Central, District, and Hammersmith & City lines) and Stepney Green Underground station (District, and Hammersmith & City lines).


Arrival by Underground

Mile End (Central, District, Hammersmith and City Lines) and Stepney Green (District, Hammersmith and City lines) stations are both less than five minutes walk from the Mile End campus. For instructions on how to reach these Underground stations from airports or Waterloo International Eurostar terminal, see: Arrival.

From Mile End station, turn left and cross Burdett Road and Mile End Road at the traffic lights, continue along the Mile End Road until you reach the College buildings on the right. From Stepney Green, turn left out of the station, cross Globe Road and continue along Mile End Road.

Car Parking

No car parking will be available. Cars parked on the campus are likely to be clamped and a removal fee payable. The nearest pay car park is over a mile away, and local street parking is not recommended. Delegates are strongly recommended to arrive by public transport.
