Go on Foot
Bristol & Bath Railway Path is a well maintained 13 mile off road route between the cities of Bristol and Bath. Ideal for travel on foot or by bike, the path is open to walkers and cyclists and is accessible for disabled users. Not only a picturesque commuter route, the path is also an important wildlife corridor. There are also footpaths around and through the Science Park, enabling you to get around the local neighbourhood or take a walk to clear your head. Click Here for a journey planner.
Go by Bus
There are three options to get to the Science Park by bus.
The X18 is an express bus service linking Emersons Green to Aztec West via UWE, MOD, the North Fringe and Filton. The route combines the current service 18 as part of a range of improvements from First and South Gloucestershire Council delivering more frequent services for commuters and better connections with other routes.
Alternatively you can take the First Bus Number 48 route from Bristol City Centre.
Request the driver to stop at the Meadgate stop on Emerson Way in Emersons Green. Once off the bus, make your way along Emerson Way to the petrol station located on the roundabout (you will have passed this on the bus, as the bus descends the road & turns right at the roundabout onto Emerson Way – the petrol station is clearly visible).
Follow this pavement around, keeping the petrol station on your immediate right. Keep walking and you will reach the Emersons Green Beefeater and Premier Inn located on Lyde Green Roundabout. Follow the pavement round the bend and you will see a light controlled pedestrian crossing (the roundabout will now be on your left).
Cross over both sides of the road and follow the pavement once again around to the right and up the road (you do not need to cross again until you get to the end of the pavement). You will see an open area of land to your left – keep this on your left hand side and you will come to the top of Dirac Crescent, which is located just before the bus shelters. This is the Science Park. You will see The Forum at the bottom of Dirac Crescent – a large glass fronted building. Reception is located in The Forum.
Saving you petrol and wear and tear costs, and offering a relaxing journey to work – just hop on and let the bus take you, virtually to your desk.
