Every room in the Doubletree has an iMac computer meaning guests can relax with a TV or a film in the evening, or catch up on work after a busy day networking. Complimentary WiFi comes as standard, while the hotel's popular Millbank Lounge, award-winning City Café and Skylounge provide the perfect backdrop to unwind with a drink after a busy day.

Situated in the heart of Westminster and within easy reach of the QEII Conference Centre, the Doubletree is also close to the Houses of Parliament, London's West End and the Square Mile, making it convenient for networking socials and entertaining clients in the evening.

Its central location also makes the Doubletree easily accessible from London Gatwick and Heathrow airports for those travelling to IMPA London from overseas.

The Doubletree is slightly more expensive than the Copthorne Tara, though that is a reflection of its location, style and the services on offer. Those attending IMPA London are however offered preferential rates while staying there during the exhibition.

39 Dartmouth Street, St James, SW1H 9BP

The Two Chairmen is thought to be one of the oldest pub businesses in Westminster and is located in a small cul-de-sac between St James' Park and Parliament Square.

Lovely cosy pub just a few minutes walk from the QEII. A favourite with our IMPA regulars

The Westminster Arms


9 & 10 Storey's Gate, Westminster, London SW1P 3AT

The Westminster Arms is in the heart of political London, a stone's throw from the Houses of Parliament. It features a division bell so MPs can dash back to the House in time for the vote. As well as politicians and journalists, the pub is usually bustling with civil servants, tourists, conference delegates, actors and models

You cannot get any closer than this – right next door to the QEII. – Great for celebrity spotting!

Word of warning – No mobile phones to be used when at the main bar!!

The Sanctuary

The Sanctuary can be found Just round the corner from St James's Park Tube station on Tothill Street, which takes its name from Tothill Fields where, in rougher times, bull-baiting took place until the 1820.
