BPA/SWIP Good Practice Scheme
As signatories of the BPA/SWIP Good Practice Scheme, the BSHP will take steps to ensure gender balance among speakers and participants. As for all BSHP events, some funding is available for childcare. If you require childcare in order to attend the conference please contact email@example.com.
Bursaries of £100 will be available for speakers who are graduate students/unwaged members.
Accommodation and Location
Participants are asked to make their own arrangements for accommodation. The conference sessions will be held in the central London location at the Strand Campus of King’s College London.
The postal code for this area is WC2, so accommodation with this postcode should be not too far from the conference venue. Other postal codes that may be of interest are WC1 and SE1.
There is a huge range of accommodation available in London, from cheap hostels to AirBnBs to five-star hotels. It is cheaper to go outside the centre of London, but then transport costs would need to be factored in.
The closest tube station to the Strand Campus is Temple, however Charing Cross, Covent Garden, and Holborn are all within easy walking distance. The Transport for London website is the comprehensive source for the latest information about public transport within London.
We have provided a list of accommodation in central London that you might wish to contact. For more options, including more expensive alternatives, we suggest you visit websites listed at the end of this guide which also sometimes have special offers available.
