Conference Venue

Celtic Manor Resort

Celtic Manor - Wales

The Celtic Manor Resort in Wales is a world class conference venue which provides us with the space and facilities to bring together researchers from around the world to explore the key topics and most challenging issues faced today by the international higher education community.

Although situated in the Wales on the border with England this location is easily reached by international delegates coming into London airports or main rail stations with a journey time to Newport of less than two hours and special low price rail fares available for SRHE Conference delegates.

For delegates who wish to extend their stay, the resort offers many leisure facilities and other activities details of which can be found on their website:


Celtic Manor is only 90 minutes from London Heathrow, 45 minutes from Bristol and Cardiff-Wales International Airport and 5 minutes from the Severn Bridge (M4 Motorway). It is located close to inter-city rail services at Newport, with direct trains to Cardiff, London Paddington, and Birmingham.

Delegates attending a conference at The Celtic Manor Resort can normally benefit from an exclusive rate when travelling by train with First Great Western between London Paddington and Newport. However there are temporary problems with this special rate, and we have advised GWR of this technical problem, which we hope they can swiftly rectify. For the time being the current advice is to use the link below and simply book the best fare available.
