We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

How to find us

Our address is:

Arts & Humanities Research Council
Polaris House,
North Star Avenue,

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 WHSmiths). 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. Visit the National Rail Enquiries website or call them on 08457 484950. Trainline offers complementary information and is also available as an app.

By bus: The Swindon bus station is a five-minute walk from the Swindon railway station. Bus services run frequently from the town centre and the surrounding area. For more information visit the Thamesdown Transport website or telephone 01793 428428. Alternatively visit the Traveline or call them on 0871 200 22 33.

By road: For your SatNav, our post code is SN2 1FL.

There is only very limited visitor parking at Polaris House, the North Star pay and display car park is located on the roundabout at the entrance to Polaris House, however, we encourage members of staff and visitors to use alternatives to driving if possible.
