This year TLC takes place at Northumbria University, at the following address:
City Campus East, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 8ST
Whether travelling by air, sea, rail or road, Northumbria University is easily accessible. Newcastle upon Tyne is just under three hours away from London by the fastest rail service, whilst Edinburgh (Scotland’s capital) is only an hour away. Newcastle has its own International Airport, whilst regular ferry services operate to and from Northern Europe.
Road travel, by coach or car, is particularly easy as Newcastle stands on the premier north-south route in the UK. Once in Newcastle itself, the extensive local public transport system, including the Metro (Tyneside’s own underground), makes getting around very easy.
