Accommodation:

The RAF Museum is a wonderful venue, located on the site of the former Hendon Aerodrome. There are no hotels on site, but it is easily accessible by public transport. Overseas attendees may well prefer to stay at hotels in central London, and experience all the UK’s capital city has to offer. This is very achievable as the venue is only a short Underground ride from central London to Colindale on the Northern Line and a 10-minute walk from Colindale to the museum.

Hotels in closer proximity to the RAF Museum include:

  • The Premier Inn London Hendon, 2.4km/1.5 miles from the venue
  • Holiday Inn Brent Cross 4.8km/3 miles from the venue
  • Best Western Palm Hotel, 5.7km/3.6 miles from the venue
  • Hilton Wembley, 6.5km/4.1 miles from the venue

The nearest hotel to the venue, and probably the most economical, is the Premier Inn.  The Holiday Inn at Brent Cross is also quite close to the RAF Museum and has the advantage of being on the Underground and located directly opposite one of London’s largest shopping centres with a multitude of eateries. But please do note that both these hotels, as well as the Palm, are all located on busy arterial roads.

The Green Light team will be staying at the Best Western Palm Hotel. The rooms are well reviewed and the venue is not too far away. There is a shuttle bus between the hotel and Golders Green Underground station. Golders Green also offers plenty of restaurant options. The RAF Museum has a preferential rate negotiated with Best Western Palm Hotel of £85 a night on a B&B basis, which is subject to availability. To secure this rate, please email info@palmhoteluk.com and state that you will be participating in the conference at the RAF Museum. Subject to the number of guests staying at the Palm Hotel, we may offer coach transportation to and from this hotel each day. Registered delegates will be notified closer to the time if this is the case.
