About Plymouth

Plymouth is located on the border between Devon and Cornwall on the south-west coast of England. The region is an area of outstanding natural beauty and amongst the most popular tourist destinations in the UK. Plymouth is a vibrant, compact city by the sea. The University and its facilities enjoy a central city location and thus is within walking distance of hotels and the famous Barbican and Hoe, boasting numerous fine restaurants and pubs, in a rich historical setting.

Conference venue

The University is located at the heart of the city of Plymouth, with excellent rail and road links. The campus boasts an extensive range of modern conference facilities including state of the art lecture theatres, exhibition venues, galleries, meeting and breakout rooms.

The University's dedicated conference and events team work with delegates to provide a comprehensive support package so that the conference is a success. Our meeting rooms offer the ideal space for focused presentations or group work, away from usual working environments.

The campus accommodation is well equipped with modern facilities and comfortable furnishings offering en-suite single bedrooms with all towels and bedding provided.

Travelling to Plymouth

There are hourly trains from London Paddington that take around 4 hours. GWR are offering discounted conference rail travel to UKACC delegates.

The nearest airports are Exeter and Newquay, both of which are approximately an hour (40-60 miles) away and are near or have access to train stations that have direct links to Plymouth. Bristol airport is two hours away by car or train.

London Gatwick and Heathrow are four hours away by car with good rail and National Express coach service links.

Plymouth also has an international ferry port serving France (Roscoff) and Spain (Santander).


Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We are constantly monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact. The University remains open with a safety-first approach to ensure our campuses are ‘covid-secure’ for our staff, students, local community and visitors, in accordance with government guidance.
