Where to Stay
If you are planning on attending a course or a workshop at the National Design Academy and need somewhere to stay, we have a list of hotel and guest house accommodation, available from only £24 per night.
Don't worry about being on your own, as most of the students on your course will be staying at the same listed address, they often spend evenings together.
