Instructions on how to get here

We are privileged to have Dr Peter Dolman from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, as our principle internationally acclaimed guest speaker. He will speak on the VISA classification of Graves’ orbitopathy and innovative dissection technique in the BOPSS Update Course and dysthyroid optic neuropathy and non-endoscopic endonasal DCR in the main symposium.

The Wednesday evening reception will be held at Cardiff Castle, and the Thursday evening dinner and ceilidh will be at the National Museum of Wales, with a reception in the popular art galleries. Both are 10 minutes walk from the meeting venue.

Cardiff’s rich culture has a diverse range of influences. We will visit the Roman Castle and the National Museum of Wales with its world famous art collection including Renoir’s ‘Blue Lady’ and works by Van Gogh and Monet. Cardiff has the highest concentration of Victorian, Edwardian and contemporary indoor shopping arcades in any British city, enhanced by the new St. David’s centre with John Lewis as its anchor store. Further afield, south Wales has dramatic scenery, coastlines and a host of mystical castles.We think you will agree that this promises to be a very exciting meeting and we very much look forward to seeing you in Cardiff.
