there are many online reduced price booking sites for London hotels. It is delegates responsibility to book their own accommodation. Bloomsbury (Central London district) would be an ideal situation, close to the British Museum and the British Library - here are several links that may be useful:

If any Section Members have difficulty with bookings please contact the UK representative Tricia Adams for further suggestions.
