Travel information

The workshop will take place in the Zeeman Building, University of Warwick, Coventry, UK. (Building no. 38 on the campus map). You can use Google Maps to see where the University is located in the United Kingdom.

Note that the University is not in the town of Warwick (which is about 8 miles away), and it is not the same as Coventry University (which is a different university, located in the centre of Coventry). Taxi drivers at Coventry Station or Birmingham International are generally aware of this, but it may be useful to give them the postcode CV4 7AL.

Rail & bus

If you're coming by rail or bus (e.g. National Express or Megabus), you should come to Coventry. You can then take a taxi or local bus to the university campus, which is located outside the city. Information on getting to the University of Warwick from Coventry and other directions locally can be found here.


  • Coventry, a short taxi-ride away (but not served by major airlines)
  • Birmingham. Recommended for international travellers. To get to the University from Birmingham airport either
  1. (cheapest) take the train to Coventry (around £3.00, 10 mins) and then local bus (around £2.00, 25 mins; exact fare must be paid to driver) or taxi (about £10, 15 mins) to the University of Warwick
  2. (possibly slightly quicker, but expensive - about £30 for the half-hour ride) take a taxi from the airport to the University of Warwick

East Midlands (near Nottingham) has some international flights, and has an (infrequent) National Express service to Coventry.
