Getting Here

Plymouth is the gateway to the South West.  Known as Britain's Ocean City, we are served by a main Great Western Railway link from London Paddington and by Cross Country Trains north to the Midlands and Scotland.  There are frequent services from Newton Abbot, Torbay, North Cornwall and North Devon.

Travel Disruptions and Diversions - 2019

Commencing in February 2019, Network Rail have announced a series of planned engineering works on the train lines serving the South West. Because of this, it is possible that your travel may be disrupted. Please check GWR's Planned Engineering page to find out whether your journey may be disrupted before you travel.

Additionally, this year a series of road improvements and updates are being carried out across the city, which will mean that road access to the college may be subject to some short diversions. Click here to find out more about the planned works, and the current roadworks taking place across Plymouth
