MEA recommends the use of low carbon transport wherever practicable so highlights its proximity to Shrewsbury Rail Station and Raven Meadows Bus Station. We also have provided at the rear of our site high quality cycle parking facilities. A shower room is available.
The railway station is a 5 minute walk away. From the rail station exit head towards the pedestrian crossing, crossing the main road to then use the crossing point (near Antonio's gentleman's hairdresser) to head to the right towards the modern apartment block and then stay on the left hand pavement heading towards The Gateway (Chester Street) and The Pump House is the next building on the left.
For those with mobility problems taxis are readily available from the rail station and can drop off outside the main front door. The building is fully accessible.
There is a bus stop (Broome Place, Chester Street) directly outside the building (river side) served by the bus services 6, 7, 501 and 576. For details call 0871 200 22 33 or use http://www.traveline.info Text phone users can ring 0870 241 22 16. Lines are open 07.00 - 22.30 every day.
