Getting to York

Getting to York:

By airManchester is the nearest international airport, and is the most convenient for York (there is a direct train to York from the airport which takes 90 minutes, and works out much cheaper than the London-York rail link). Leeds Bradford Airport is closer to York, but there is no easy way to travel to York from the airport.

Heathrow and Gatwick airports in London are popular choices. See the airport websites for details of traveling to Kings Cross rail station in Central London, and from there take a train to York.

Travelling from the airports

By rail: This is the best way to travel to the conference from within the UK. York is on many central, quick rail routes. The station is in the city Centre, and from station to the University there is a frequent bus service (no 4, a bendy purple bus).

UK Train Information

Eurostar is a good choice from mainland Europe as St Pancras, Eurostar’s UK terminal, is adjacent to Kings Cross Station, from where you can take a direct train to York (2 hours). 
Eurostar Information

By long distance bus: York is not a bus-hub, but travel from most places in the UK to York by bus is possible and is relatively cheap.
Bus Information

By car: There is very limited car parking in York city and at the University, and you are strongly advised to use public transport if at all possible. If any delegate with limited mobility needs to park a car close to the conference rooms, please email us as soon as you book.

Getting to the University:

By bus: The best way to get to the University of York campus is by bus.

There are buses from the city centre approximately every 10 minutes during the day, and it takes around 20 minutes to reach the campus.

The 44 and bus services to campus stop at the railway station and in the city centre.

Bus routes and timetables

By bicycle or foot: York is small, and if you are staying in the city this is a good way to get about. Bicycles can be parked on campus.

Getting to the Berrick Saul Building:

The Berrick Saul Building is in the main part of campus just off Heslington Road, a short walk from the 4 and 44 bus stops.
