CA London Introduction

Lock at Limehouse
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 CA London

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 extremely popular weekly lectures on Wednesday nights from October to April and hold a monthly club supper over the summer months.

Where We Meet

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