Limited parking facilities are available on campus for visitors. If you are a local attendee, we ask that you find alternative methods of travelling to the venue for the conference rather than travelling by car if possible.
London Heathrow and London Gatwick are the main UK airports.
However, there are also small airports at Exeter and Bristol which cater for a few UK and European flights often at reasonable prices and can cut down on overall travel time. You might also find connecting flights via a European city from international destinations. Remember to factor in additional rail, bus, coach, taxi fares when comparing prices.
Note, that there is currently one flight a day between London City Airport and Exeter Airport in each direction. Journey time is approximately 1hour, 15 minutes.
