plant-evolution-2016-square.jpgWe have negotiated a deal with Queens’ College for accommodation for conference delegates. A single en-suite room with breakfast will cost £80.40 per night. Go to and use the promotion code: KX18037.

The following hotels and guesthouses offer accommodation within walking distance of the Botanic Garden:

  • Holiday Inn Express off Coldhams Lane - if you don't mind using a taxi and definitely want parking

If you're on a budget, there's a Youth Hostel a few minutes walk away.

Note that parking will be a problem the closer you stay to the Botanic Garden and also that hotels in Cambridge are expensive.  Buses run frequently along Cherry Hinton Road and down Hills Road and there is a stop at the Botanic Garden.

If you can't face ringing around here are some places that you can search online or who will find and book for you:
