How to find us


AHRC, Polaris House, North Star Avenue, Swindon, SN2 1FL


By train: 
We are located adjacent to Swindon railway station. When you arrive at the station make your way to the Upper Concourse, which is next to Platform 3. Find the footbridge to Polaris House (the access barrier for the footbridge is next to WH Smith). You will need to use your train ticket to get through the access barrier. Continue over the footbridge until you reach Polaris House.

There is no lift access to Polaris House from the station, so if you are unable to use the footbridge you can instead take a taxi from the station to Polaris House. Taxis are available outside the main ticket office at the station.

For train timetables, you can visit the National Rail Enquiries website (opens in a new window) or telephone 08457 48 49 50.
