Locations

The conference venue is close to the railway station Cambridge Central, about one mile away. The Travelodge on Newmarket Road is currently the best-value hotel, and is approximately one mile away from the venue. We have added some other hotel options to the map, some of which are closer but more expensive, plus car parks (the venue doesn't have parking facilities) and park-and-rides for those of you driving in daily.
