The Bus/Coach Station is a 5 minute walk.

Temple Meads Station is a 25 minute walk or a 10 minute taxi drive. As the dual carriageway sweeps round the Cabot Circus development it broadens into 4 lanes. The right hand 2 lanes are signed to the M32, and you want to be in the left of these 2 lanes. At the traffic lights don't swing right up the M32, but cut straight across the dual carriageway and into St Paul Street.

By bus take the no. 8 or 9 to Bond Street.

Bristol Parkway Train Station is a 15 minute drive down the M32 or by bus take the no. 73 to Stokes Croft.

If you need further directions please ask!


Feel free to bring your bike into the Centre; we have safe parking for up to six bicycles.

From the M32: come off at Junction 3 onto the large roundabout. Take the 3rd exit onto Lower Ashley Road, and bear left at the traffic lights.

At the mini-roundabout turn left along City Road. At the next traffic lights turn left down Brigstocke Road until you emerge into Portland Square, which is one-way like a large roundabout.

From the City Centre: turn left just after the multi-storey car park, up York Street into Brunswick Square, and then turn right to take Surrey Street through into Portland Square.



There is pay & display parking in the Square at £4 for 4 hours (free after 6pm and on Sundays). Alternatively parking is available in the 2 multi-storey car parks.

Portland Square is a one-way square, so drive clockwise around it to the opposite side. The Pierian Centre is at No. 27, the green door.


The following list comprises a range of different types of hotels; the first group has been chosen because of its proximity to The Pierian Centre. The second group gives a sample of hotels for those preferring to be close to Clifton Village for sightseeing. The rates quoted are a rough guide only and are per night for room only for various occupancies; they may be cheaper if more than one room is booked. We would appreciate feed-back on any of these hotels, which we can then pass on to other users of The Pierian Centre.
