Travel to the conference venue
All talks will be in the Herschel building.
From Newcastle Airport or Newcastle Central Station, take the Metro to the Haymarket Station, exit onto Haymarket, Cross the B1307 Percy Street, and walk up the steps. The Herschel Building is the first building on the left.
If coming from the accommodation in Castle Leazes, you can either walk for about 15 minutes, or call a taxi. The walking route can be extended to give a nice walk across the Town Moor and through Leazes Park if desired.
