The HUB takes place in central London at Somerset House's Embankment Galleries - within short walking distance of Temple and Covent Garden tube stations and 5minutes walk from Charing Cross and Holborn tube stations.

The venue is well situated for bus access with 15 different London bus routes stopping on Lancaster Place's bus stop T, over the road from the venue. 

The Demo Zone is a showcase for startups and prototype games - and includes a series of international pavilions. Tickets/access to this part of the HUB is free (registration required).  
Meet the creators behind the games of tomorrow ready to showcase their ideas and innovations. This is also the perfect place to test or debut new/early games before they head to bigger shows and festivals.
