TRAVEL: Especially for those coming to Llanarth for the first time, as you plan your travel PLEASE KEEP IN MIND HOW LONG IT TAKES TO REACH LLANARTH, WEST WALES VIA RAIL/BUS!!!!
It generally takes 5 to 6 hours to reach Llanarth or Aberaeron via rail/bus travel from London Heathrow, Bristol, Cardiff, or Birmingham airports. For example, from Birmingham International Airport there are direct trains to Aberystwyth that take about 3 to 3 ½ hours, plus another 1 hour from Aberystwyth by bus to Llanarth. After reading this information and going on-line, please contact me if you have questions!!!
For UK RAIL TRAVEL information you can visit and book on-line rail travel: (note…the earlier you book the cheaper the tickets!)
You will want to travel either to ABERAERON or CARMARTHEN. Aberaeron is located approximately 50 minutes by bus north of Llanarth. Carmarthen is located approximately 94 minutes by bus southeast of Aberaeron. Approximately two weeks before your arrival, I will ask all of you to inform me of your travel plans so that I can pick you up by car either in Llanarth (Ceredigion) OR Aberaeron (Ceredigion) and deliver you to your accommodation either on-site or at Woodlands Village, New Quay.
I will provide fill information on bus timings, etc. closer to the beginning of the workshop.
FOR THOSE TRAVELING FROM ABROAD, YOU WILL PROBABLY WANT TO ARRIVE IN THE UK ON FRIDAY 13 JULY AND OVERNIGHT BEFORE TRAVELING TO WEST WALES, and you may need to overnight in the UK before your return trip home after our final workshop on the 17th.
