Just keep heading south and west, with the roads getting progressively smaller, until you get to Porthtowan!
All jokes aside, from London you can take the M4 motorway to Bristol, then the M5 to Exeter, or the scenic route from London (that will take you past Stonehenge) is the A303 to Exeter. From all points north of Exeter (workshoppers travelling from Wales, the Midlands or the North of England and Scotland), you’ll probably be riving almost the entire length of the M5 motorway that links the Midlands to the South West.
From Exeter follow signs to Bodmin which will put you on the A30, travelling across the top of Dartmoor, into Cornwall, across Bodmin Moor and on down to Redruth (the nearest junction to us). From the A30 junction at Chiverton Cross or Redruth, follow signs for Porthtowan. We’re at the top of the hill on the south side of the Porthtowan (on the road towards Portreath), signposted Mount Pleasant Eco Park. We’re the last unit on the left.
Our workshop is 3 miles from the nearest mainline railway station of Redruth, so if you choose to travel by train to join one of our week-long workshops, then we’ll come and meet you at the station. Cornwall is well connected to the rest of the country by rail, with multiple direct trains from London, Bristol and other major cities daily. If travelling from London and depending on your schedule, travelling overnight on The Riviera Sleeper is a great way to get here. You can bring a bike on the sleeper train too, if you want to be sure that you’ll be able to get around once you’re here (although there’s also bike hire locally).
International workshoppers are likely to fly into London airports (Heathrow or Gatwick), particularly if travelling from outside of Europe, or the major regional airport is Bristol. From London airports there are regular flights to Newquay (NQY) which is just over half an hour up the coast from the Otter workshop. To get to us from your arrival airport you can hire a car and follow the directions above, or use public transport to get into the centre of London or Bristol and catch the train.
