A few words on local travel: The Wivenhoe Park campus is located just outside Colchester (see here for a Google Map). For delegates who will be staying at local hotels or B&Bs, directions to the campus are available here. Depending on where you are travelling from, bus travel to the campus can take 20-45 minutes including waiting times. The link above contains details on which bus numbers to take. If you prefer to travel by cab, there are taxi ranks at the main bus station, outside Colchester North Station and outside the Red Lion Hotel in the town centre. You can also call a cab via the following local cab companies:
