CA London

Welcome to the London Section

Sharing information and expertise is what the CA is all about and CA London plays its part by organising talks, seminars and social events at our London HQ.

Being part of our Section

If you live or work in London, or even if you are just visiting, we hope you will come along to some of our talks and events. We run popular weekly lectures on Wednesday nights from October to April and hold a monthly club supper in the summer months.

Where We Meet

We meet at CA House, 1 Northey Street, Limehouse Basin, London E14 8BT. Our HQ is home to the CA’s small administrative team, library and information centre and accommodation. Ania, our catering manager, and her team, are always happy to see you in the bar and restaurant, which is open from 6.00pm on week nights (5.30pm on lecture nights), and from mid-day at weekends. Lectures begin at 7pm and finish around 9pm with a break for refreshment. The full programme is published here.
