How to reach the Conference:

The Conference Centre is only a 10 minute walk from Trefforest station to which there are very frequent trains (approximately every 15 minutes) from Cardiff Cenral and Cardiff Queen Street. All trains for Merthyr, Aberdare and Treherber stop at Trefforest. You are encouraged to use this option if possible in the interests of sustainability.
