Reading is a mainline train station and easily accessible from most places around the UK. There are direct trains from several major cities as well as London. Travelling from or via London, it is best (and quickest) to take a train from London’s Paddington Station. Trains from Paddington to Reading run approximately every 15-20 minutes throughout the day. The average journey time is around 30 minutes.
From the Reading Station, take a taxi or the bus to the University Campus (Whiteknights). The bus stand and taxi rank can be found outside the station. A taxi will cost from around £6 to £10 whilst the bus is priced at £1.80 (note: the bus requires exact change). Take the Claret Bus numbered 20, 20A or 21. See link below for more information on the buses to campus.
When flying into Heathrow airport, the RailAir bus picks up passengers and drops them off at the Reading train station. The coaches run every 20 minutes.
Direct trains run to Reading from Gatwick Airport every hour and take about 1 hour 15 minutes.
By car, drivers will need a car parking permit to park on the University Campus. When registering for the meeting please confirm that you will be coming by car and please provide your name, name of your institution, make, model, and colour of vehicle and registration number and a permit will be arranged for you. With the permit you will be able to park in any of the car parks on the Campus, but please note the nearest car park for the meeting is Car Park 10.
