It is safe to assume the majority of the attendees
from outside Europe
will arrive in London and most of those from Europe will arrive in
London or the southeast. As a result logistics mean that Scotland and
northern england would be problematical. In terms of facilities people
are generally looking at universities so in practice we are probably
looking for universities within striking distance of London.
Well, Edinburgh can be a possibility if you go north.
The accommodation is a plenty whether one looking at university related
or otherwise. Flights and trains available from London. Tourist
demonstrably have no problem traveling there as seen from the numbers
during the Edinburgh Festival. However, as because of the festival,
August will be out, so one will be looking at mid-to-end July.
There's 3 local universities that might be interested in supporting.
Cost is only marginally cheaper than London (and Oxford?).
Not that I'm not biased at all being at university at Edinburgh....
Experience is a good school but the fees are high.
