2CinC: Getting Here
Thu 23rd - Fri 24th February 2017, Cardiff University
The workshop will take place at the
Cardiff University School of
Mathematics. It is located in the city centre of Cardiff. Below you can
find some information on how to get here, both from within
the UK and from abroad.
The most common way to get to Cardiff from within UK is taking a train
to the Cardiff Central rail station.
From there, you can take a taxi to the School of Mathematics (£5-6)
or, weather permitting, take a 15-20 minute walk through the city
Cathays rail station is very close to the School, but it is only
served by local trains. Taking a local train to Cathays from Cardiff Central
is an alternative to taking the taxi or walking.
It is also possible to get to Cardiff by coach.
National Express coaches
stop at Sophia Gardens, while Megabus coaches stop at Kingsway.
Both of these are within walking distance from the School and
are marked on the map above.
Residents of Scotland should also consider taking a flight from e.g.
Edinburgh to Cardiff Aiport (CWL).
The following three airports are most commonly used to get to Cardiff:
- Cardiff Airport (CWL): This is the airport closest to Cardiff.
It is small and serves a very limited number of airlines. From
Cardiff airport you can take
the Т9 bus to Cardiff
City Centre (£5 one way).
Buses leave every 30 minutes and the journey takes 40 minutes.
A taxi from Cardiff Airport to Cardiff city centre costs £30-40.
- Bristol Airport (BRS): A medium-sized airport which
serves both lowcoaster (EasyJet, Ryanair, Wizz Air, etc) and major
airlines. From Bristol aiport you can take either take a
National Express coach
to the Sophia Gardens stop in Cardiff city centre (£10-20 one way), or
a local shuttle bus to Bristol Temple Meads rail station,
and then a train to Cardiff Central (£20 one way). The journey
takes approx. 1 hour 30 minutes. A taxi from Bristol Airport
to Cardiff city centre costs £90-100.
- London Heathrow airport (LHR): The largest national
airport, which serves all the major airlines. From London Heathrow
we recommend taking direct
National Express coach to
the Sophia Gardens stop in Cardiff city centre (£30-40 one way).
The journey takes approx. 3 hours. An alternative is taking the
Underground or Paddington Express to London Paddington rail station,
and then a train to Cardiff Central.
A taxi from London Heathrow to Cardiff city centre is not recommended.
