Hotel information

Some suggestions near the Mozilla office are available on the Mozilla wiki.

Other possibilities (neither of which are particularly good!):

  • Novotel Blackfriars - Nothing special and not particularly close (30min walk; 2km/1.3mi) but it was cheap when I (Brian) stayed there.
  • Park Plaza County Hall / Park Plaza Westminster Bridge - This pair of hotels are nice, right next to the Westminster Bridge. Of the two, I think the Westminster Bridge one was nicer. Not particularly close (23min walk; 1.8km/1.1mi), a bit expensive, but otherwise good.
  • St Martin's Lane - Very close to the office, a bit expensive. Slightly discounted rate available by following that link and booking by July 30.

Airport

The closest international airport to the meeting venue is London Heathrow (LHR). Alternatives are London Gatwick (LGW), and Stansted (STN) (used for budget airlines, further from London). For shorter haul flights from the UK or Europe, London City Airport (LCY) may be convenient as it is closer to central London.

Ground Transportation

See Travelling to London on Mozilla wiki.

Closest Tube/Underground station is Leicester Square (pronounced Lester).

Power

BS 1363 Type G square 3-pin plug. 240V 50Hz 13A.
