The Bristol Marriott Hotel City Centre is, as the name suggests, situated in Bristol city centre, minutes from Castle Park and the shopping quarter. The meeting, dinner and accommodation will all be under the same roof.


The hotel is a 10-15 minute walk from Temple Meads station. Car parking is available at the adjacent NCP Broadmead. If you are arriving by car, please try to share cars to save money and reduce the environmental impact.

If you would like to share a twin or double room, you can indicate this on the booking form.  Rooms will be allocated at check-in. NB Accommodation is provided on Saturday night only. 


The registration desk and information point will open at noon on Saturday and on Sunday morning. Staff and Avon Area volunteers will be on hand to help with any queries.
