The venue is operating a one way system in and out of its rooms. If you need public transport from the train station the number 2 bus (which you catch from the adjacent bus station) takes you outside its doors and runs regularly. You can see the room in more detail here:
We are confident you will be as pleased as we are with the space that this room provides for our small groups.
