The nearest train station to the campus is Penryn. Which is on the Maritime Line branch and connects to the mainline at Truro station.

It’s about 5 hours from London Paddington with usually just one change at Truro and there are frequent services throughout the day. There are also Cross Country trains via Plymouth from the North. 

Great Western also offer the Night Riviera Sleeper between the West Country and London Paddington, more details on this can be found via their website.

The conference is about a twenty minute uphill walk from Penryn station or a short taxi journey (there is no taxi rank at the station, but local taxi numbers are provided below). During the peak arrival time on the Wednesday afternoon and evening (between 3pm – 7.20pm) we will provide a free courtesy shuttle bus from the station to the campus, details of this bus will be provided closer to the time.

There is no conference parking at the AMATA building itself, but there is access for sponsors and speakers for loading and unloading of equipment.  Please contact the team directly if you need to bring a car up to the AMATA building, as it is not accessed via the main campus entrance.

Flying to Cornwall

The closest airport to the conference is Newquay, which is about a 45-minute drive to the conference.

Flybe were operating daily services from London Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham – unfortunately these are no longer running since Flybe collapsed. We are hoping that these will resume in the near future.

Newquay airport is also served by a small number of other European flights. For more information on flying to Newquay Airport visit their website.
