Accommodation

We are unable to provide accommodation on site but given our central location and easy access via public transport there are plenty of options available. Below are some suggestions and, although we have not personally stayed in any of these, we have found them to offer good value for money and a good location.

Youth Hostel Association (YHA)

A series of youth hostels offering excellent value accommodation across the city. Some hostels are more basic than others. Central locations include Oxford St (two tube stops), London Central (short walk to Oxford Circus & two stops away), St Paul’s (short walk to Mansion House and tube) and St Pancras (several stops on the Victoria line).

Further out

Both the Victoria and Jubilee lines are fast lines, and so staying further out of the city centre but close to stations on these lines is a good option. The District & Circle lines are useful, and fine for a few stops but heading towards the end of the District line will lead to a long commute in each day.


Eating Out

Dinner on Friday night, along with lunch on Saturday and Sunday, will be provided at WesMUN; an optional meal will also be provided on Saturday evening. Details of local places to eat may be found below to help your planning.

Nova

This new development very close to Victoria station has some excellent choices. There is cheap & cheerful pizza at Franco Manca, burgers at Shake Shack, and a huge variety of other options. The Danish bakery Ole & Steen is an excellent choice for breakfast.

Lovely Italian food, you’ll definitely need to book as it’s quite small. The burrata and aubergine salad is delicious. This is in Pimlico so a 15-min walk away.

Victoria Street / Cardinal Place

Victoria Street has a fair few restaurants dotted along it (quick and cheap options include Leon and Benugo). Cardinal Place is a shopping area off Victoria Street, near Victoria station, and a variety of chain restaurants are located there (Zizzi, Wagamama, Nando’s). Nando’s in particular is very good value and can be booked for groups.
