University of Exeter
Monday 3rd to Wednesday 5th September 2018
Arrival and location
We anticipate that most participants will arrive in the afternoon or evening of Sunday 2nd September. The workshop itself will start on the morning of Monday 3rd September and the last talks will be held on the morning or early afternoon on Wednesday 5th September.
Both the talks and the standard accommodation will be on the Streatham campus of the University of Exeter. The accommodation is at Pennsylvania Court (number 36 on the campus map) and the talks will be held in Room 004 of the Harrison building (number 23 on the campus map). Check-in at Pennsylvania Court will be open from 3pm to 10:30pm on Sunday 2nd September. Check out is by 10am.
Here is some general advice on to travel to Streatham via bus, rail, or Exeter Airport. Onward travel from Exeter Airport is available by bus or taxi. The bus is cheap (a few pounds), but doesn't run that late. The taxi costs about £25. There are direct flights between Exeter and many British and European airports, including London City Airport, Paris CDG, Dublin and Schipol (Amsterdam); one option is to connect at one of these airports.
Bristol airport is the next closest airport, and is one and a half hours to Exeter. Upon arrival at Bristol Airport, follow the signs for the Bristol Flyer bus and purchase a ticket to Bristol Temple Meads Rail Station (journey time is 20-30 minutes). At Bristol Temple Meads take train to Exeter St David's train station (journey time approximately one hour).
The two largest airports in the UK are Heathrow and Gatwick, and partipants from North America will probably have to fly to one of these (they also have flights to many European cities). By far the cheapest onward travel option in both cases is to take the bus to Exeter Bus and Coach station. From Gatwick, you can travel by train via either Reading or Clapham Junction (cheaper, but a bit slower) to Exeter St David's train station. From Heathrow, you can take either the Heathrow Express or Heathrow connect (a bit slower but much cheaper) to London Paddington train station and then take the train from Paddington to Exeter St. David's. Alternatively, you can take this bus service from Heathrow to Reading train station and then take a train from there to Exeter St. David's; yet another option is to take a bus from Heathrow to Woking and take the train from there to Exeter St. David's.
Rail prices and timetables (including for onward travel from airports other than Exeter) can be found at National Rail Enquiries.
Coach prices and timetables (including for onward travel from airports other than Exeter) can be found at National Express.
There are many options and "tricks" for travelling to Exeter (especially onward travel from airports) so please do not hesitate to contact Henri Johnston ([first initial] dot [last name] at exeter.ac.uk) for further advice.
