titleCourse 1: CEH Lancaster on 27th-28th April 2010

Directions

By road: Leave the M6 at junction 33, take the A6 north towards Lancaster. Continue for 1.75 miles, turn right at the second set of traffic lights into the University (after Galgate village). At the roundabout take the last exit. CEH is located on Library Avenue (1st left), however, if you want to park on campus you will need to use the pay & display area on Farrer Avenue (2nd left). Campus map

By rail: Lancaster railway station is on the main West Coast London- Scotland route, about three-and-a-half hours from London (see timetable). Take a taxi to the University from the station.

Link to Multimap

By air: There is a direct rail link from the Manchester International Airport (Terminal 2) to Lancaster Station (see timetable). Journey time is between one and a half and two hours. Alternatively if required we can arrange an airport taxi for you (email Aimee Walmsley).

A number of the cheaper airlines operate from Liverpool John Lennon Airport. However, there is no direct rail link to Lancaster.

Accommodation

If you have requested accommodation this will be reserved for you in the Lancaster House Hotel. Visitors to CEH are given a special rate of £80 per night (bed & breakfast). The Lancaster House Hotel is within 10 minutes walking distance of CEH.

If you are reserving your own accommodation and need assistance identifying to stay somewhere contact Aimee Walmsley
