Getting to the University by Train

   
   

Nottingham is right in the centre of the country and is very well connected to all other major cities by the train network. 

Regular services operate between Nottingham and London St Pancras (from 1 hours 45 mins), Birmingham (1 hour 15 mins), Leeds (2 hours), Manchester (2 hours), or Sheffield (1 hour).

Be sure to book as far in advance as possible for the cheapest tickets and check out East Midlands Parkway Station – it’s close to Sutton Bonington Campus and often does deals on fares: www.eastmidlandstrains.co.uk

For train information, tickets and timetables visit the National Rail Enquiries website.

Cycle parking is available at Nottingham and Beeston train stations and outside every building at all University campuses.
