Here is our super handy page to finding York MakerFest, which is being hosted at the National STEM Centre! Exciting, right?
Set in the historical city of York, on the University of York campus, the National STEM Learning Centre is ideally situated. With easy access to and from the city centre and York train station, our Centre is easy to get to regardless of how you’re travelling. So settle in! Here’s how:
The address for navigation systems:
National STEM Learning Centre
University of York
It is easiest to arrive by train and then take a bus or taxi. The STEM centre is only a 15 minute journey away from the York train station in a taxi, so is the ideal way to travel regardless of where you’re travelling from.
There are abundant cycle tracks and ‘bike parks’ available on campus, so if you’re healthy, bike parking isn’t a problem!
A bus service runs from the train station to the University of York, approximately every 10 minutes (First Bus, number 66). The scheduled journey time from the train station to Heslington is just 20 minutes.
Is there a shuttle bus?
We understand that it would be easier to park away from site and catch a shuttle bus, this is very much in the works and we will post any updates as to whether we can get a shuttle bus service running on our blog and social media.
Ask for the National STEM Learning Centre or the University of York’s Campus North car park.
We strongly recommend that you use public transport to get to the event. Parking at the University is extremely limited and it is significantly easier to arrive by train and/or take a bus or taxi.
The nearest car park is the Campus North car park – please note that it is often full (especially during the event!). Parking is free though, so there is no need to use the Pay and Display machines.
We will also have signs directing you to parking – just follow the yellow York MakerFest event parking signs.
