TRAVEL, PARKING & ACCOMMODATION (and everything in-between!)


For the very first Justice Conference in the UK we are thrilled to be based at The Drum at Wembley - The UK’s greenest public building! (We hear those ‘whoops’).  The Drum is situated inside the Civic Centre, which is located directly opposite the Arena and slightly to the right if you’re looking at the stadium. Wembley is a great but busy location so we want to help you plan the easiest route whether you’re travelling from near or far, we’re nice like that!
There are a range of accommodation options around the SSE Arena, Wembley to suit every taste and budget from hotels to (Air)BnBs.  

**If you have booked accommodation and are planning on checking out on Saturday please check with your venue to ensure you’re able to leave your bag in their cloak room as we are sadly unable to accommodate this at the conference venue.  

There are various options for getting to Wembley and we’ve tried to help make this easier for you.  This website is helpful to assist in helping plan the easiest journey to the area.  For quick reference here are some guidelines:
 

TRAIN

Step free access and low-level ticket machines are available at all three stations however Wembley Central Station is step free from street to platform, but not from platform to train.

FOOD (glorious food!)


Let’s be honest, nobody wants hangry people at the conference and luckily we’re in a prime spot for a variety of restaurants, cafes and grab ‘n go food to suit every taste bud.  Have a browse of what Wembley Park has to offer!

We have a small Sainsbury on the side of the building and Lidl within 5 minutes’ walk.  

A slightly boring but comfort (for all) bit…
  • You are of course welcome to bring your own food but we ask that no main meals or those with a strong odour be eaten in the main hall.
  • Snacks that are in a non-noisy packaging are welcome throughout the main sessions

OTHER BITS

To help make your experience at The Justice Conference every bit as enjoyable as possible while keeping with the spirit of the conference, here are some helpful hints and tips… are you ready?!
  • If you will need access to the disabled loos please remember to bring your access key
  • Remember to bring your reusable water bottle.  There will be water refill jugs available
  • Don’t forget that coffee (and tea) maketh us function, so remember your coffee cup (but we’ve helped you with this and given you one that you will receive on arrival as part of your ticket   - yes, I know, we’re wonderful!)
  • There is an in-house cafe with locally sourced and ethically produced Fair-Trade tea and coffee.
  • Need a straw for your smoothie, cutlery on the go, or a lunch box to bring your own but don’t want to use plastic?  There are a number of alternatives and it helps to have them handy for reuse. Check out your local highstreet to see if there’s a local business you might support.  Alternatively, here are a couple of brilliant online stores doing their bit to move towards zero waste
  • Notebook and pen/pencil because we’re going to be learning loads from each other as well as Bible - paper or digital, whatever works for you. 
  • Please note there are no specific charging points so if you are intending to use your phone heaps during the conference (#tweetablemoments #TJCUK18) please bring your own extra battery
  • Safety first: Emergency tel. numbers Call 999 or 112 for a medical emergency
  • Just to say, we don't permit handing out flyers or approaching other attendees to promote causes, charities or organisations, unless your charity or oganisation is an official partner or exhibitor
