Getting to the University:

The Humanities Building (no. 55 on the map) is on University Park Campus – nearest to the West Entrance. This is where most of the events are taking place. The nearest tram stop is University Boulevard, and there are a number of bus services that stop near the West Entrance. There is limited parking on Campus (and a fee is charged) - if you plan to visit by car it is advisable to email the organiser first. There are many more options if you travel by public transport. The Trent Building, where the First World Walk will begin, is marked no. 11 on the map. Locations across University Park Campus and Festival sessions will feature in the Treasure Hunt.

Manuscripts and Special Collections is located on King’s Meadow Campus (KMC) – there is a Hopper bus between University Park Campus and KMC (see timetable on the next page).

You can find other ways to get to KMC on the Manuscripts and Special Collections website
