Most advance train tickets go on sale 12 weeks in advance, ie Friday 12 July, although this may vary depending on the train companies used on your route.

If you are travelling with Great Western Railway, there is an exclusive rate for conference attendees:
Sample standard returns: London Paddington £42, Plymouth £39, Worcester £39, Oxford £42. 
Please be aware that these train tickets will be valid only with proof of attendance at a conference.

TIP! Try splitting your tickets to get cheaper fares. For example, if you are travelling from Newcastle to Newport work out your route and timings then buy each leg separately. It can - but not always - save you some money. Read more about ticket splitting here.


From the train station to the venue

The venue is 10-15 mins by taxi from the station, or 30 mins by bus. A new public bus route is being introduced in September this year which will take you right from the station to the venue (frequency and timetable to be confirmed). And we are pleased to announce that through a partnership with Volvo, there will also be an electric bus shuttle available over the conference period. More details to follow.


Coach

National Express and Megabus operate coaches to Newport. 


Car

Obviously, we would prefer it if you did not drive to conference unless you have a disability which makes it essential. If you must come by car, please offer a lift to other members in your area. You can do this via the Green Party Liftshare scheme, through your local party or via the facebook event.

There is on-site chargeable parking at the venue. This will be bookable in advance direct with the venue (booking link to follow). Charges: £6 for 5 hours, £9 for 5-8 hours, £12 for 8-12 hours, £18 for 24 hours.

We are able to offer some blue badge spaces at no cost. Please let us know if you would like to reserve one of these by emailing ruby.tucker@greenparty.org.uk
