Now select your departure or arrival time and add a return journey if required. The planner will show public transport services up to three weeks in advance.


Transport Modes

TOP TIP! – you can go back and select a different result or change the journey start or end point by clicking on the 2:Options or 1:Plan tabs.


Walking

Walking routes will, where possible, take you along public footpaths and avoid busy roads. If you are interested in a circular leisure route try our walkit planner.


Cycling

The journey planner will provide a route based on your choice:

• Balanced - The most practical for the average cyclist who wants to get there quick-ish, and is happy to dismount for short sections

• Quietest - Avoids busy roads where possible, more likely to require walking for some sections

• Fastest - More likely to use busier roads


It knows the Sustrans National Cycle Network (shown as NCN in the directions) and will avoid hills where possible.

The information is provided and updated by CycleStreets. Please contact them directly with any feedback on cycle routing.


Driving

The planner shows the quickest driving route and will prioritise main and trunk roads where possible. Expected journey times will vary depending on peak or off peak conditions.

The indicative journey costs take into account the capital cost of the vehicle, maintenance, insurance, tax and fuel. However don’t forget to add the cost of parking

If your journey ends within half a mile of the city centre, the planner will automatically provide you with a Park & Ride option too. This will direct you to the most convenient Park & Ride site so you can enjoy a stress free journey into the city.

Alternatively why not split the cost of driving by car sharing?


Public Transport

The planner will show public transport journeys by both bus and train if selected. The information is sourced directly from Traveline. If you believe any information is incorrect please let them know via their contact form.

Real time departure information is provided by NextBuses and National Rail Enquiries.
