Local Public Transport
On weekdays and Saturdays the easiest way of travelling into the city centre is to use the Park and Ride facility. This is situated at the roundabout approximately one mile away from the site towards Chester. A special autobus leaves every 10 minutes at peak times and every 15 minutes off-peak times.  If you have a motor vehicle, which exceeds the height limit, spaces are reserved for you at the Park and Ride. This service saves time trying to find a parking space in the city centre, which can be expensive. Parking in Chester is less of a problem on Saturday evening and all day Sunday.
Alternatively, you may take a bus to Chester from Christleton Village (opposite Christleton High School).  This service operates on the hour and half-hour. There is also a bus service on the road, near to the site and timetables for these buses may be found in the information cabin. 
A taxi to Chester City centre costs about £7.00. It is also possible to walk (approx. 3 miles) to Chester along the quiet and peaceful canal towpath.
