Agenda

The agenda.

Remote Attendance

We'll be on the usual IRC channel (irc://irc.w3.org:6665/#coremob) but whether or not we'll have a voice channel is TBD.

Lunch

Mozilla will provide lunch on both days (providing we are not too numerous)

Dinner

TBD, I suggest Belgo Centraal, 50 Earlham Street, Close by Mozilla's Offices - this will be self-funded unless anyone kindly wants to sponsor it. I will ask about set menus etc. depending on the number of people who express an interest in joining (see questionnaire).

Location

Mozilla's offices are located at:

101 St. Martins Lane Suite 300. 
London WC2N 4AZ
United Kingdom

Accommodation

The St Martin's Lane Hotel is very close by, and at the time of writing has offers from GBP 185.

There are lots of other hotels in London ...

Travel

Mozilla's offices are close to Leicester Square and Charing Cross Tube (Underground) Stations and London Charing Cross main line railway station.

Transport for London's Journey Planner is a handy way of planning your journey within London. As is the iconic London Tube Map. You'll find Leicester Square Station right in the middle, at the intersection of the dark blue and black lines.

Fares

You'll find travel a lot cheaper in London if you get an Oyster Card. You can get them from Tube stations and you'll need to pay a GBP 5 deposit and initial GBP 5 top up. The deposit is refundable should you decide that you will never return to London. But bear in mind that When a man is tired of London he is tired of life.

Be warned that your accounts department won't believe the cost of taxis in London.

Airports

London has 5 airports, Heathrow (LHR), Gatwick (LGW), Stanstead (STN), Luton (LTN) and London City (LCY) - collectively known by the IATA code of LON. You may find cheaper flights to one of the lesser known airports. The only one that offers a direct connection (by tube) to Leicester Square is LHR. The others are all reasonably well connected to central London by rail links.
