By car - On approaching The Gloucestershire Science and Technology Park turn into the carpark, turn right, continue straight through the signs for 'no unauthorised access' with the John Huggett Engineering Hall in front of you, follow the road round to the left, then to the right, and you'll see the C11 building straight ahead of you.
