The CHME conference will be hosted at the University of Greenwich, in our Queen Anne Building (Old Royal Naval College, SE10 9LS).

Our campus is based on a World Heritage Site on the banks of the River Thames. The university's largest campus is centred on three baroque buildings designed by Sir Christopher Wren at the end of the 17th century.

"More breathtaking than the Versailles of Louis XIV" is how The Independent newspaper described it.

The Borough of Greenwich is steeped in history. East meets West on the Meridian Line, which divides the hemispheres and marks longitude zero. The line runs through the courtyard of the 17th century Royal Observatory and indicates the spot from which Greenwich Mean Time is calculated.

Please note that there is no parking available on campus, except for blue badge holders.

Please use TfL to plan your journey via public transport, or the information below.
