Accommodation and travel details
Herstmonceux Castle is located south of London near the south coast of England. Gatwick is the closest airport, where there is frequent train service to Polegate, the station nearest to the castle. Taxis can be booked in advance to provide transportation from either Gatwick or Heathrow.
Accommodation during the Conference is in rooms in Bader Hall, located about 500 metres from the Castle. Both ensuite and standard rooms are available. Ensuite rooms are limited in number; standard rooms have two beds and can be booked either as single or shared accommodation.
The rooms are available on Saturday, 30th July 2016 for those attending the preconference workshop or anyone who wishes to arrive a day before the conference begins. The meals on Saturday have to be organised off site at a local restaurant. The first evening meal is on Sunday 31st July. There will be a coach tour to a nearby house and garden, leaving at 10 AM on Sunday and returning by 5 PM.
