TravelWarwick Castle

The University of Warwick is conveniently located for travel via Birmingham International Airport (BHX). A car or taxi journey between the airport and the university should take approximately half an hour, and a train service also operates between the airport and Coventry. Should visitors wish to arrive at Heathrow Airport (LHR) or Gatwick Airport (LGW) instead, Coventry is also served by train services from London.

For more information about how to arrive at the campus in general, see: 

Specific information for visitors arriving from overseas can be found at:


The surrounding area and the county of Warwickshire offers a number of sites of historic interest. Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, is approximately half an hour to the south. Warwick Castle is eight miles from the University, while Kenilworth Castle is about three miles away. All are accessible by public transport. See sidebar.


The EFTMS Workshop will cover a number of subject areas, including:

  • Orbitrap
  • Other FTMS methods
  • Applications
  • Technique developments
  • Computational modelling
  • and more...
