How to get to St. Bees

By road: 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.

By rail: 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.

By air: International flights fly in and out of Manchester Airport (140 miles from St. Bees). Newcastle Airport is only ninety miles away and Liverpool airport services international flights as well. Easy jet provide flights through all three airports whilst Ryanair provide flights to Liverpool and Newcastle. The School provides transport to and from these airports at the beginning and end of every term.
