London is home to a number of Solar Car Challenges where students compete to build a working solar car model that highlights the most efficient designs for solar cars. If you are planning on traveling to the UK to compete in a Solar Car Challenge be sure to plan your stay well in advance. Where you stay in London is important. London is a huge metropolis, and though the tube is efficient (Not during rush hour) London is a city based on neighborhoods and it can take a while to get from one end to the other. Whether you are booking a London guesthouse for the weekend on Roomorama, a hotel for the week, or one of London’s vacation rentals, figure out your priorities and select a neighborhood accordingly. It might be better to stay in apartments or short-term rentals. It helps if you can get 3-4 people together on it, staying in an apartment is way nicer (and usually cheaper!) than a hotel room, especially if you’re going to be attending the Solar Car Challenges. Roomorama usually has a pretty good list of options and having a kitchen to cook in, appliances to use, being able to do laundry and having a few rooms for people to spread out can make a huge difference.
