Transport

Conference delegates are encouraged to use public transport to get to Cardiff wherever possible and take advantage of Cardiff’s walk-able nature when in the city.

There are three train stations within walking distance of the conference venues and accommodation:

Cardiff Central is located approximately 1.0 miles from Cardiff University and is a 20 minute walk to the Cathays Campus. At Cardiff Central you can catch connecting trains to Cardiff Queen Street and Cardiff Cathays. This will be more than likely the closest one to your accommodation since many of the hotels and hostels are located nearby.

Cardiff Queen Street is located approximately 0.6 miles from Cardiff University and is a 12-minute walk. At this stop you will find a few more hotels.

 Cardiff Cathays station is located in Cathays Park campus and provides easy access to both of the conference venues. There are very regular trains between Cathays and Cardiff Central.

There is limited car parking available at Cardiff University. However, there are a series of both short and long stay pay and display parking options located around the city. Please refer to www.parkopedia.co.uk or Cardiff Councils web page for further information on parking in the city.
