Bus routes to Knightstone, Loxton Campus and South West Skills Campus.

In order for you to be able to easily access either our Knightstone Campus or our Loxton Campus, we have been working very closely with First Bus and Crosville. 

The majority of our full-time students can travel easily to any of our campuses from across the region on a First Bus or Crosville service. This may be a dedicated bus service or by using the normal bus route depending on where you live. There are frequent buses from within the Weston area, as well as direct buses from Bath, Bristol, Clevedon, Nailsea, Portishead, Burnham-on-Sea, Wells, Bridgwater and the surrounding areas. This gives you the flexibility to come and go to suit your study needs.

First Bus and Crosville operate a wide range of network services throughout North Somerset, Somerset, Gloucester, Wiltshire and within the Bristol area. Bus times and other service information can be obtained from Travel Line on 0871 2002233 or online at http://www.travelwest.info. In addition to this, extra services will operate across the town from Worle, directly to the Loxton Campus.

Please contact Student Services for an up-to-date timetable.
