Business Design Centre

Situated in Islington, one of London’s most vibrant areas, the BDC is within walking distance of Angel tube station and relatively close to Kings Cross, Farringdon, Liverpool Street and Euston stations. Conveniently located outside the congestion charge zone, the venue also benefits from on-site car parking, an adjacent Hilton Hotel, and has disabled access.
