Located in the heart of the UK, Sheffield is one of England’s largest cities, with excellent road, rail and air networks.

Manchester Airport is served by many domestic and international carriers, flying to over 200 destinations worldwide, and has a direct rail link to Sheffield both day and night. The train journey to Sheffield lasts about an hour.

Manchester, Leeds/Bradford, Birmingham and East Midlands airports are all about an hour’s travel time from Sheffield and easily accessible via regular rail and bus services. Car hire is also available from these airports.

Our conference, including conference dinner and wine reception, will be held within a very small area. With hotels also placed within just a few minutes’ walk of the conference venue, good local and national transport links and plenty to see and do in the city centre, we advise our UK visitors to do the planet a favour and leave the car at home.

Sheffield’s National coach service for long distance travel is comprehensive and efficient. Its central pick up and terminal point is at the transport interchange, just a few short steps from the main Owen Building at our City Campus.

By car or taxi the City Campus is just a 30 minute journey away. There is an express bus service from the airport, or you can take a taxi or bus to Doncaster rail station and catch the train to Sheffield station, just five minutes from our Charles Street building on City Campus.
