Getting to and from Scampton Airshow

Car Sharing

We are pleased to be able to offer you access to a Car Sharing Service - GoCarShare, to help you all find transport to the Scampton Airshow this year. 

GoCarShare link drivers with passengers meaning everyone can get where they need to go whilst sharing time and cost whilst doing your bit for the environment. 

It's all linked with Facebook so you can find your friends and/or like-minded people to travel with. 

We have a page exclusively for volunteers, please visit Volunteers Car Sharing to log your journey and find a match. Please note this is a service provided through GoCarShare, not by us, and you should read and understand GoCarShare's terms relating to the service as they will be binding upon you.

Travelling by train

Using public transport is a great way to get to and from the Scampton Airshow whilst doing your bit for the environment too. Here are some useful links to transport providers:

Travelling by car

Whilst we do encourage our volunteers to either use public transport or car share we are aware that this is not always possible. A staff car park is available to all volunteers, and there is plenty off free parking at the University Accommodation..
