Location & Transport
The conference will be held in Earlham Hall at the University of East Anglia (Building No. 40, Campus map). The University is located in the city of Norwich. Whilst on campus you are welcome to visit the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, or take a leisurely walk around the broad (lake). Bring your camera and photograph the famous UEA bunnies along the way!
You may also wish to explore the historic city of Norwich which is the most complete medieval city in England. With over 1500 other historic buildings within its city walls including two cathedrals, and an imposing Norman Castle there is plenty to discover and explore. For information on Norwich and the surrounding area (Norfolk is a haven for ornithologists and the magical waterlands of the broads draw visitors from afar), see the Visit Norwich website.
From London take the M11/A11 north; just outside Norwich take the A47 (Southern Bypass) in the direction of Swaffham; the University is signposted off at the next exit (B1108). If you are driving from the North or the Midlands, you can use the A47 via King's Lynn, or the new A14 as far as Newmarket and then take the A11 to Norwich. UEA is situated on the outskirts of Norwich, around two and a half miles west of the city centre, just off the Earlham Road (B1108) which is one of the main roads out of the city.
