Location of venues

The Richmond Building is approximately 15 minutes walk from the Wills Memorial Building, so please allow time to walk between venues when planning your day.

When arranging to meet guests after the ceremony we recommend planning a meeting point in advance which is not directly outside the Wills Memorial building, as it may be very busy at the end of the ceremony.


The nearest airport to the University is Bristol International Airport, which is approximately 10 miles from the University.


There are various hotels close to the University.  We recommend you contact Bristol Tourist Information Centre on +44 (0)906 711 2191 or search for accommodation at Visit Bristol.

Left luggage facilities

Bristol Tourist Information Centre £5 per item, open 10am – 5pm (items must be collected 15 mins before closing time) Tel: 0333 3210101

Bristol Rock and Bowl Motel £3 per item, open 24 hours Tel: 0117 325 1980.

Neither of these options is close to the University, so where possible we’d recommend leaving any large items at your hotel. As the amount of storage available at each may be limited, we would also recommend calling on the day to check there is space for your item(s).
