Transport information

By train
London is very well served by train services from all over the United Kingdom. The nearest mainline station is London Paddington. We would recommend for rail

By underground
The nearest underground station is Edgware Road (2 stations - 1 station for Circle, District and Hammersmith & City Lines and 1 station for Bakerloo line, both directly opposite the hotel

By car
The Hilton London Metropole is located outside of London’s Congestion Zone and boasts a secure car park with 170 spaces. We would however encourage all delegates to use public transport and promote sustainability

By air
London has several major airports: Heathrow, Gatwick, London City, Luton and Stansted. We would recommend for further information


As most of you will wish to stay at The Hilton London Metropole, it is strongly recommended that you make your reservation straight away. There are only a finite number of bedrooms available at the BACD rate, and once the allocation is sold, there will be no rooms available at the lower rate. During this period, World Travel Market London 2017 will be taking place, and this means low availability everywhere.

The EICC, The Exchange, Edinburgh EH3 8EE

Situated at the heart of Scotland's elegant and historic capital city, the EICC is one of the world's outstanding venues for conferences, conventions and exhibitions.

When it comes to inspirational cities, few can rival Edinburgh. The blend of UNESCO World Heritage architecture and world-class entertainment make Edinburgh a breath-taking city to visit. You may experience difficulties pulling yourself away from the city - but it is worth remembering that transport links make it easy to explore the rest of Scotland too. For instance, how about a trip to the Borders, the Highlands, or St Andrews - the home of golf? They are all within easy reach in this small, stunning country.
