How to best reach Bristol (UK)?

Option 1: Flying directly to Bristol

When flying into Bristol (BRS) you can take a taxi from the airport which will take about 20 min. Alternatively, you can take the bus "Bristol Flyer" (line A1) to the city. The buses run every 10 minutes from very early to very late to serve every arriving and departing flight. The bus ride from the airport to Bristol city centre and vice versa takes about 30 min. The bus also stops just 300m away from the conference venue in case you plan to stay at the Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel.

Option 2: Flying to London first and then traveling to Bristol

When flying into London Heathrow you can take a train to London Paddington and then to Bristol's main railway station, Bristol Temple Meads Train Station. However, often it is even faster to take a coach to Bristol. From some London airports, there are direct coach connections to Bristol. For instance, from Heathrow it will take you just 2 hours by National Express coach and significantly longer by train.
