Durham is on the main north-east railway line. London is less than three hours away and Edinburgh is less than two.  There are easy connections with most other parts of the country, including a direct service to Bristol and the south-west.  The city lies just to the west of the A1M and there are regular long-distance bus services.  From the rail station there is a regular  bus service to Palace Green (the cathedral) from where St John’s is a short walk. The last bus from the station on Saturday is at 5.10pm (Cathedral Bus Timetable pdf ). It is also easy to hire a taxi at the station. Walking from the station takes about 20 minutes. A map is available at Durham Tourist Information  


Traffic restrictions from the market place onto the peninsula are in operation.  Everyone who drives to college will pass the registration number recognition system (operating between 10am and 4pm Mon – Sat) and will need to register at the college reception (by giving the porter your registration number) to avoid an automatic fine. Further details can be found at Local Government Information

If anyone feels it is essential to travel by car, St John's can secure a limited number of week-long permits to use Durham University car parks (most about 15 minutes walk from St. John’s).  These will not guarantee a space, but will allow us to park if we can find one. All permits will have to be issued on request in advance.
