WHERE TO STAY
There is a myriad of accommodation options in London, we always suggest attendees find a place to stay that meets their own aspirations for the event. There are a number of hotels a short uber ride from the venue, as well as copious Air BnBs in the vicinity. If you want a more lively weekend, consider staying in central London and commute to the venue.
Alternatively - the cheapest and closest accommodation to the venue - is the Lee Valley Campsite, where you can camp from as little as £9 or stay in a bungalow, cabin or even a wigwam for much less than a hotel room. As an extra bonus, you're just a 5 minute crawl from your gaming table in the morning. You can find out more here.
HOW TO GET HERE
We encourage attendees to either drive to the venue, where there is free parking, or travel via Edmonton Green and catch the W8 bus as the nearest train station (Ponders End) is a 15 minute walk away.
By train: The nearest rail stations are Ponders End and Edmonton Green on the Liverpool Street Line. Nearest underground station is Tottenham Hale on the Victoria Line. Please note that Ponders End is a 15 minute walk to the venue.
By bus: London Transport W8 services runs to and from the complex. The W8 connects to Edmonton Green train station.

FOOD & BEVERAGES
In 2019 the most common piece of feedback we got from our attendees was that they wants us to improve our catering at the event. We went back to the drawing board with 2 primary goals in mind. 1) to increase the speed of service i.e. shorter, faster moving queues, 2) to increase the variety and quality of menu choices and to add some healthy options.
The only way we can achieve both of these, for up to 2,000 people, is if attendees pre-order all their meals. It is very important that you do so, as there is no a-la-carte cash service! Outside food and beverages are not allowed into the facility, so we have endeavored to find the most affordable meals possible, while still providing a range of options. There will be a licensed bar accepting cash and card serving hot and cold drinks including alcohol but this will not be selling food.
There is free water available from the bar or feel free to bring your own if you would prefer.
You can order your food now from our webstore, here.
