How to get to Durham

The workshop will take place at the IPPP, part of the Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics, adjacent to the main Physics Department building on the University Science Site. Durham is a small place, and the department can be easily reached by foot from most places. The walk from the train station to the IPPP is from one end of the city to the other, and takes around 20 minutes. Alternatively, there is a taxi rank just outside the station.

Reaching Durham by car

Durham is about 30 minutes by car south of Newcastle upon Tyne. On the A1, the exit for Durham is clearly signposted.

Reaching Durham by Plane

After arriving in NCL, the easiest way to get to Durham is by taxi (around £30-£40 if booked in advance); however, you can also connect with the rail network by first taking the Metro to Newcastle Central and then another train to Durham.

The Metro is at the opposite end of the airport to Arrivals. It runs frequently and takes roughly 30 minutes (and £3.60) to get to Newcastle Central.
