Getting to Sheffield

Sheffield Hallam University (City Campus) is situated 5 minutes from Sheffield train station and Sheffield Interchange (for buses, including National Express).

Travel tickets without additional booking fees can be purchased from Northern Rail or East Midlands at:

If coming by air, the airport that serves the most airlines is Manchester. There is a direct train from Manchester airport to Sheffield that takes about 75 minutes. Alternatively, and particularly if you are coming from Eastern Europe, it is worth checking if there are flights direct to Sheffield/Doncaster (Robin Hood Airport). This is served by busses that take you to Sheffield Interchange (about 45 minutes).

If you prefer (or need to) fly into London, there are fast trains every half hour to Sheffield direct from London St Pancras and indirectly (with 1 change at Doncaster) from London Kings Cross. The travel time is usually a little over 2 hrs if direct, and under 3 hrs if indirect.Car parking is expensive in the Sheffield City Centre, but there are Park & Ride services from Halfway, Middlewood, Meadowhall Shopping Centre and Nunnery Square. The closest tram stop is Castle Square or Sheffield Station. If you do want to park close to the venue, there is a Q-Park directly opposite Sheffield Business School and NCP car park opposite the Crucible Theatre. We can arrange for discounted parking in NCP car parks.
