Travel

We will meet at Paddington station at 8.am, by the gate for the Bristol train. We will take 8.27 am train from Paddington to Bristol Temple Meads. At the time of writing, tickets are £20.50 each way. We will arrive back in London at about 6.30 pm. Please buy your train tickets. We recommend buying them as soon as possible as fares will rise. https://www.thetrainline.com/

Alternatively it is possible to travel by National Express coach or Megabus.

If you wish you are welcome to make your own car-sharing arrangements. There is no allocated visitors parking but there is some free parking in the residential areas near the sites we are visiting.

It is possible to walk between the residential sites, however, it is quite a long walk. Fishponds Road to Ashley VAle is about 30 minutes' walk. Those not wanting to walk can share taxis, which will take about five minutes for each journey.

Weather

We will be outside a lot so please bring waterproof clothing in case of rain.

Tickets and costs

Tickets are £20 including booking fees and VAT. The tickets will include entry to the chosen sites. The ticket price does not include rail or coach travel, taxis or lunch. These will need to be bought by attendees.
