By train

Our campuses have great connections with the Robin Hood Line which runs regular trains from Nottingham to Worksop (via Mansfield), making train travel easier than you think.

If you’re planning on regularly using the train, a Railcard may save you up to a third off fares, and you should also take a look at weekly, monthly or annual season passes to save even more money.
