London Event Info

The London event is taking place at the Microsoft offices in Victoria, London.

Cardinal Place
80-100 Victoria Street
London
SW1E 5JL

Obviously the Underground or National Rail are the best ways to get to the office. Currently the roads in this part of London are still being dug up from over 2 years ago for CrossRail. It’s truly horrific trying to navigate this area at the moment. So the walking route from the station to the office shown below is probably not going to be the one you take.

As far as local landmarks go, Westminster Cathedral is not far away from the Microsoft Offices.
