London is one of the world’s major centres for heritage and museums. The conference will take place at UCL’s 20 Bedford Way in Bloomsbury, in the very centre of London. Less than five minutes’ walk from the British Museum and a number of other significant heritage sites and internationally renowned collections, the venue provides easy connections from London’s global hub airports at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted, and is an easy 10-minute walk from St Pancras International Station with rail connections to mainland Europe. The venue itself is a controversial grade 2* listed building which provides a pertinent setting for the conference theme. Opened in 1977 and designed by Sir Denys Lasdun, it is considered to be one of the finest examples of Brutalist architecture in the UK.
All halls and rooms at 20 Bedford Way are fully accessible; however, if you have special mobility requirements, we would ask you to make us aware of these when you register.
