What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

By Bus: New College is very well served by public transport. Buses run from the town centre and stop outside the College at least every 10 minutes. Many bus routes from in and around Swindon either have a stop on Queens Drive just outside the College or connect with the regular services from the town centre. 

For further details on bus timetables visit:

By Rail: Swindon station is located in the town centre and has direct services to London (eastbound) and Bristol (westbound). There are also services northwards to Kemble (for Cirencester), Stroud and Cheltenham and southwards to Chippenham, Melksham and Trowbridge.

By Car: Road access to New College is from Queens Drive, parking is available but cannot be guaranteed. For Sat Nav please use postcode SN3 1AH.

How long will the event last?
Please note this is an evening event. Registration opens at 6.30pm and we expect to be finished by 8pm at the latest.
