Plan your visit

VRWC17 was fantastic

Got your VR World Congress tickets but yet to plan your travel and accommodation? Let us help you out with some hotel recommendations, offers and general travel information. Bristol is a beautiful, vibrant city and we want you to make the most of your trip.


By Plane - 

Bristol Airport logo vector.svg

Bristol has its own international airport with inbound flights from a huge range of European destinations. We encourage travellers from abroad to consider Bristol Airport (BRS) as it's only a short bus ride or taxi from the center of Bristol and VRWC.

For those coming from further afield, any major UK airport has direct links to Bristol via road or rail. However, London Heathrow (LHR) or London Gatwick (LGW) are the recommended options.

By Train -

The closest station to the venue is Bristol Temple Meads (BRI).

Bristol Parkway (BPW) offers access to the city and other transport links, but Bristol Temple Meads is much closer and recommended.

Our venue from Bristol Temple Meads is: a 20 minute walk, 5 minute taxi ride, 10 minute bus ride or, if you have some time to kill and want to experience travel that is pretty unique you can get a 17 minute Bristol Ferry.

If you cannot see our yellow AA road signs to find your way to VR World Congress, follow the pedestrian signs to At-Bristol or The Centre.

For train travel from beyond the UK, Eurostar offers travel to London from Paris, Brussels and other French cities. Trains to Bristol Temple Meads (BRI) can then be accessed following a small London Underground journey from St Pancras International (STP) to London Paddington (PAD), onwards to Temple Meads.
