BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT: Parade Gardens is a short walk from Bath Spa Railways Station and Bath Bus Station – click this map for details.
BY BICYCLE: By far the best way to get from your overnight accommodation in Bath to the festival site in Parade Gardens in the centre of the city, is by bicycle. But please don’t forget that Bath is quite hilly! We’d really like to encourage you to bring your bikes and a good quality bike-lock to secure it to the bike racks in the city centre.
BY CAR: There is no parking on site and city-centre car parks are expensive. There are three Park & Ride sites:
All will deliver you into the city centre a short walk from Parade Gardens.
The festival is FREE to the general public. Entrance to Parade Gardens is free for discovery card holders and blacksmithing ticket holders and £1.50/80p (charged by the local council) for non discovery card holders.

For a budget option, the Youth Hostel offers private en-suite rooms as well as dorms and is in a lovely setting a short bus ride from Parade Gardens (U1 and U18 buses from city centre run 24 hours and stop outside hostel).
We want to keep BathIRON as GREEN as we possibly can.
We are trying to be as paper-free as possible. All speaker notes and maps will be available online.
Please bring your own refillable and reusable drinking receptacles, bottles, cups etc..
Travel as green as you can walk, car share, ride a bike, a horse! Or use public transport.
Please take your rubbish home with you and recycle it there! That means from both the blacksmiths camp site or the festival site
Recycle everything you can.
