Tours:

All of the tours on offer for this conference are being arranged by Dr Thomson's Tours of Historic Canterbury (http://www.drttours.co.uk).

Delegates who may be interested in extending their stay may find this site useful, as Dr Thomson can arrange trips to the Continent via Eurostar. Paris is only 2 hours away from Kent!

You may also wish to look at making independent Eurostar bookings. If so, these can be made on the Web at http://www.eurostar.co.uk

ITiCSE 2001 offers you a choice of tours, but please note that each tour will only run at a particular time and date if there is sufficient interest. Remember to reserve your place on the Accommodation and Tours Booking Form.
(Details of minimum/maximum numbers are indicated after each tour).
