And if you want to find out more about what Brighton has to offer, then the VisitBrighton website is a good place to start.


ACCOMMODATION

This year, the conference venue is a short journey away from the city centre by train (10 minutes to Falmer station) or bus (25 minutes), so we suggest staying in Brighton centre/seafront area so that you’ll have easy access to transport links and the evening social/gala dinner venues, and of course an opportunity to go to the beach!

A range of hotels/B&Bs in Brighton are available to book at preferential rates via our dedicated accommodation booking page (available until 30th May), provided by the lovely people at VisitBrighton.

Additionally, there is a centrally located Premier Inn and a Travelodge (both budget hotel brands of a good standard).

You can also search for other places to stay using sites such as booking.com.


TRAVEL TO BRIGHTON

There is lots of useful info about getting to Brighton here: https://www.visitbrighton.com/plan-your-visit/visitor-information/travel-information/getting-here.

The closest airport is London Gatwick, from where there are frequent trains to Brighton taking 30 mins, or the journey time by car is 45 mins.


DATES / START AND FINISH TIMES

We begin with the optional pre-conference workshop (9.00am to 12.30pm) on Tuesday 6 June, followed by the main conference which begins at 1.30pm. The conference will finish on Thursday 8 June at approximately 4.30pm.
