WGW02 will be held at HP Labs Bristol, situated 5 miles from Bristol city centre, adjacent to the University of the West of England (UWE) Filton Campus. Bristol city centre is served by Bristol Temple Meads rail station, but the nearest main-line station to HP Labs is Bristol Parkway. There is also a small branch-line rail station, Filton Abbey Wood, even closer to the HP Labs site.

Low-Cost Student Accommodation

50 rooms have been reserved for student participants at Carroll Court on the UWE campus. The cost will be 62.04 per person for room only, with arrival on 13 August and departure on the morning of 17 August. As we have made a block booking, there can be no reductions for shorter stays. Places at Carroll Court are primarily intended for EPSRC/BBSRC funded students but will be made available to other student participants according to availability on a first-come, first-served basis. Students in the latter category should write to the Workshop Chair (address at the Student Zone) asking to be considered for Carroll Court.

Please note that all accommodation is with shared bathrooms; there are no en suite facilities at Carroll Court.

Keys can be collected from the gatehouse on arrival on 13 August.

Hotel Accommodation

Rooms have been reserved at three hotels close to HP Labs. All three hotels are on the same roadway, which passes the HP Labs site. The nearest is Holiday Inn Bristol Filton; the second-nearest is Holiday Inn Express Bristol North. The furthest is Quincy's Premier Lodge Filton, which is approximately 25 minutes by foot. Delegates are responsible for making their own bookings, quoting the appropriate booking references in order to qualify for the special workshop rate.

Peak-time road traffic is often congested on the road that serves the hotels and HP Labs. Delegates are advised to leave in good time if they intend to drive.
