Accommodations

 

All conference participants are responsible for their own hotel and travel arrangements. Book early for best rates and options. The conference venue does not offer hotel accommodations. London has plenty of options from 5-star to budget to airbnb. We suggest you search around the St. Pancras area - a short 5-10 minute walk to Central Saint Martins and King's Cross, as well as St. Pancras Rail Station for Eurostar.

 

Suggestions and special rates can be found here and below are hotels very close to Central Saint Martins.
