Liverpool has a large number of hotels, Airbnbs and other accommodation. We think the best locations are:

  • The Georgian Quarter - brings you close to the conference venues, in one of the most beautiful and historic areas of Liverpool. 
  • The Albert Dock area is 15-20 minutes’ walk from the conference venues but brings with it stunning views of the waterfront. 

Accommodation options within the block of streets closest to the university conference venues are not necessarily the nicest! TripAdvisor ratings are usually pretty fair, so we recommend you check those out when thinking of where to book.
