The department of Mathematical Sciences is a pleasant 15 min walk from Durham
station. For details of how to get here, see the  CPT home page , under  contact info .
Talks will be held in the Maths department, and should be well signposted.

Accomodation will be provided in the   Castle  (University College) next to the cathedral.

Some local eating info can be found  here  together with a cheesy  map.

If travelling by train, there are some very reasonable advance fares
(c. £30 from London), try booking online at  chester-le-street  `station'.
