The nearest train stations are Oxenholme (for Milnthorpe Road Campus) or Kendal (for the Arts & Media Campus). Click here to go to the national rail website. Train travel is usually more expensive than local bus provision, but it may be a consideration if you are travelling from Carlisle or Preston. You may be able to apply to the Bursary/ Learner Support Funds for help with train costs if bus provision is not available.
