Church House Westminster
London is the capital and largest city of both the United Kingdom and England. Standing on the River Thames in southeastern England, 50 miles (80 km) upstream from its estuary with the North Sea. Founded by the Romans London has been a major settlement for two millennia. The City of London, London's ancient core − an area of just 1.12 square miles (2.9 km2) and colloquially known as the Square Mile − retains its medieval boundaries.
The City of Westminster, where this year’s IPIC Conference will be held, is an Inner London borough holding city status.
One of the capital’s true hidden gems, Church house is set within Dean’s Yard and offers a peaceful and green setting along with stunning views of Westminster Abbey whilst being only a few minutes’ walk from Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament and St James’s Park. Church House is served by excellent transport links and are within easy walking distance of both Westminster and St James’s Park underground stations, Victoria, Waterloo and Charing Cross mainline train stations.
