The University of Bath is easily reached by public transport or taxi from the train station, but parking is available on campus, and parking permits will be available in advance, by request. Permits will be required on all days, so if you wish to have a parking permit sent to you, please send an email, before 17.00 on Wednesday 6 July, to csct@bath.ac.uk with “Summer Showcase — parking permit” in the subject line. The East car park is closest to the venue (see campus map). Alternatively, delegates can use the Pay & Display units situated in the East Car Park at a cost of £1 per hour.

Parking is administered by an external company, that applies the rules very strictly, so please only park in allowed areas, with appropriate permits.


No accommodation has been arranged or block booked (except for international visitors). There are a range of hotels in Bath city centre and some accommodation is available at the university. Delegates should book their own accommodation as required. Bath city centre is compact and most hotels will be within easy walking distance of suitable restaurants or other amenities.
