The Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics
This is adjacent to the main Physics Department building on the University Science Site. If you are arriving by train it is a 20 minute walk from the railway station to the Department, or you can take a taxi. Google map link here.
Workshop talks will take place in lecture theater PH8 in the Rochester Building.
We can offer highly discounted accommodation at Collingwood College, a 10 minute walk from the IPPP. The cost for a single ensuite room is £43.75 per night including breakfast.

How to get to Durham
Durham is about 30 min. by car south of Newcastle upon Tyne. Find the A1 and leave it at exit Durham. From the south take exit 61 (Bowburn) and follow the A177 to Durham.
If you arrive at either Newcastle International Airport (NCL) or Teesside International Airport (MME), you can take a Taxi directly from the airport. The price should be roughly £50 one-way to Durham (and take about 40-50 minutes).
There are bus connections to Durham or Newcastle from most major cities in England.
The Intercity East-Coast line links Durham with London King's Cross and Edinburgh. Most Intercity trains stop in Durham. Otherwise you have to take a local train or taxi (around £25 one-way) from Newcastle Central station. (You could consider the train from Paris which takes roughly 6 hours.) Timetable information is available from National Rail
By metro/train from the Airport
There is a direct metro link from the airport to the central train station in Newcastle, from which you can take a mainline train directly to Durham. These are very frequent and take 12 minutes. The whole journey takes about 50 minutes.
The airports in Edinburgh and Manchester also have good train connection to Durham. So does London, but the train ride takes considerably longer.
