Dundee is on the main East Coast rail line. Direct services to major cities in Scotland (Aberdeen, Edinburgh, and Glasgow) are just over an hour away. The railway station is only a five minute drive from West Park Conference Centre. There is a taxi rank outside the station. Information about accessibility is available from the Scotrail website.

By air

Dundee Airport is three miles to the west of the city centre. The airport is only a five minute drive from West Park Conference Centre.

Accessibility

The venue is on a slope but is fully accessible and staff help will be available on the day should you require assistance*.

The main event takes place in the Camperdown Suite. Lunch and workshops will then take place in the venue’s Mansion House. There is a short walk between the two buildings and ramps are available. We have planned the event’s programme around the layout to minimise the amount of moving around delegates will have to do on the day.

By providing your accessibility requirements during the registration process, you will help us to plan the day better to suit your needs. If you have any concerns ahead of the event please don’t hesitate to contact the team at event.info@mssociety.org.uk
