By Car

Life is situated a few minutes drive from the A1(M).  There are over 400 secure car parking spaces available at the pay and display Times Square Car Park.  (Sponsors should contact the organisers as there are alternative parking arrangements for dropping off exhibits).

By Train

Life is located just 200 metres from Newcastle Central Station and the Metro underground station.  When coming out of the station on foot, turn left and continue walking for approximately 150 M.  You will see the Centre for Life directly ahead of you, with a glass bridge joining the two halves of the building.  Do not walk under here, but instead turn left and walk down the left side of the building.  The Conference and Banqueting Suite is approximately 50 M down this road (Central Parkway), past the Institute of Genetic Medicine, on the right hand side.   

By Air

Newcastle International Airport is just 6 miles from the city centre, and has connecting scheduled flights to all major UK airports and international hubs.  The airport is 20 minutes away from Life by car, or 30 minutes by Metro.
