Travelling to Lucid

Air Travel

Manchester is the nearest international airport to Lucid Training Centre. We usually recommend that people who are flying into the country should either hire a car and drive from the airport (approximately 2 hours), or take a direct train from Manchester to Oxenholme (The Lake District). If you intend to fly into one of the London airports, the best option can often be to take thetube to London (Euston), then a direct train to Oxenholme, which takes around 3 hours. You can get an internal flight to Manchester and then take the train from Manchester to Oxenholme, but this is often not as flexible an option as taking the train (as there are more trains running than flights). Alternative airports in the north of include Newcastle, Leeds-Bradford, and Glasgow.
