There is easy access from the A1 north and south and the venue.  The centre is based just off the A167. Take the 4th exit onto Front Street, then on the next roundabout; take the 1st exit onto Abbey Road. It would be best if you then took the next left onto Smithfield, and the centre will be on your next right.


By Train / By Bus

Durham Railway station is 3 miles from Durham Workspace. The centre is a 13-minute bus journey from Durham Train Station.

The nearby Arnison Centre (a retail park) is well serviced by buses throughout the day. The Workspace is then a short walk (5 minutes) from the bus stop. Arriva operates the number 64 bus, and there is a bus between Durham City Bus Station and the Arnison Centre every 10 minutes.
