ILMC is committed to reducing its carbon footprint, and we would encourage all delegates to do the same. If possible, please consider using active transport methods such as walking or cycling, or public transport wherever possible. For delegates flying to ILMC from overseas, please consider one of the many carbon offsetting – or preferably carbon removal – programmes available to air travelers.

UK-based delegates who drive to the venue will be subject to the Congestion Charge, which is a £15 daily payment for driving within the congestion zone between 07:00-22:00, unless driving a vehicle that uses alternative fuel.

To help clean up London’s air, the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The zone now covers all areas within the North and South Circular Roads. The North Circular (A406) and South Circular (A205) roads are not in the zone.

Most vehicles need to meet the ULEZ emissions standards or you must pay a £12.50 daily charge to drive inside the zone:

This includes cars, motorcycles, vans, and specialist vehicles (up to and including 3.5 tonnes), and minibuses (up to and including 5 tonnes)

There is very limited parking at the hotel and in the surrounding area, so please pre-arrange a parking space with the hotel if you would like to use one of their spaces.
