Travel information

Howard House is located here, and some generic travel information is available on this University page.

The main train station in Bristol is Bristol Temple Meads. You may check departure and arrival times on the National Rail website. Advance purchase of tickets is highly recommended.

Upon arriving at the train station you may take buses no. 8 or 9 in the direction of Clifton, leaving from the bay on the right just beyond the taxi rank. Get off the bus at the Clifton triangle, the top of Park Street, opposite the Wills memorial tower. A single trip costs £1.50 if bought on the mobile and £2 if bought from the driver in cash, and usually takes under 20 minutes. Timetables are available here. A taxi from the train station to Howard House normally costs under £10, and the trip should take less than 15 minutes.
