As a new feature this year our long-time conference manager, Nicole, kindly built us an interactive hotel map for the conference. It provides information about hotels in the vicinity of the venue, and lets you book directly.
Note that neither ASLING nor the chairs or organizers of this conference are in any way connected to this booking site, nor do we endorse or recommend it above any other; it is simply rather convenient.
Alternatively, here is a pdf-file with a list of "Hotels within one mile of One Birdcage Walk", provided by our venue.
Meanwhile, besides the above link and hotel list provided by One Birdcage Walk, downloadable above, we recommend trying various other internet hotel and travel booking sites for hotels in your preferred price categories. We cannot recommend specific sites, but trust delegates will have made positive contact with at least some such sites. Hotels in the London "areas" Westminster, Victoria Station or Hyde Park are within reasonable walking distance. Alternatively, finding a hotel along one of the following London Underground (tube / metro) line stations is a good alternative:
(a) the District or Circle lines - the St James's Park station of these lines is just 5 minutes walk from the venue,
(b) the Jubilee, District or Circle lines - Westminster station is just 7 minutes walk from the venue,
(c) the Victoria, District or Circle lines - Victoria tube station is just 16-17 minutes walk (0.8 miles or just over 1 km) from the venue, or
(d) the Piccadilly line (direct connection to Heathrow airport) - Hyde Park Corner station is 20-22 minutes walk, via Constitution Hill and Buckingham Palace, i.e. a rather scenic - and traffic free route (1.1 miles or 1.78 km).
