The main conference takes place from Monday 2 to Tuesday 3 September at the Rheged Centre near Penrith, with outdoor activities on the weekend of 31 August & 1 September, and optional workshops on Wednesday 4 September. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or send a tweet to @propensive.
The conference venue is 2km from the small Lakeland town of Penrith, and we run a special bus service to and from Penrith town centre before and after each conference day. Penrith has a selection of hotels, guesthouses and B&Bs, any of which would make a suitable place to stay over the conference days. The largest of these are The George Hotel in the town centre, and The North Lakes Hotel and Spa, which is a little closer to the conference venue, and although walkable, we would recommend taking the bus to avoid needing to cross a main road.
Within walking distance of the Rheged Centre are the smaller Brantwood Hotel and the local Travelodge. There are many others options available through third-party agencies on Google.
But for those looking to fully immerse themselves in the full Lakeland experience, renting a car opens up a wealth of other opportunities, and staying in the nearby town of Keswick, or one of the more remote self-catering cottages deeper within the Lake District National Park, will offer you some of the Europe's best scenery on the morning ride every day!
