How to get to St. Bees
Turn off the M6 at Junction 40 on to the A66 to Keswick. Then take the A595 to Whitehaven. St. Bees is clearly signposted off the A595, three miles beyond Whitehaven and 47 miles from Junction 40. Our advice is not to follow Sat Nav instructions as this will bring you a convoluted route through the lake district and over a number of Fells.
St. Bees has its own railway station on the Carlisle to Barrow line operated by Northern Rail. Carlisle is on the main West Coast line run by Virgin trains. Carlisle to London takes just over three hours while Carlisle to St. Bees takes just over one hour.
International flights fly in and out of Manchester Airport (140 miles from St. Bees). Newcastle Airport is only ninety miles away, but does not at present support as many routes. The School provides transport to and from these airports at the beginning and end of every term.
