The workshop will start at 09:00 on Monday 15 July and close at 16:00 on Friday 19 July.

We have organised a private coach to drop people off at St Davids train station on Friday 19th. The pick-up from the Met Office will be at 16:30. It will take at least 20 minutes to make this trip. If you have a train to catch, we suggest booking this after 17:00.

Met Office security requirements

When you first arrive at the Met Office you will be asked to show identification in order to pick up your name badge. If you have an EU drivers license this suitable otherwise you will need to bring your passport.


Each day the bus from the MO will drop people off near the restaurant. If you do not want to join us for dinner, please make alternate arrangements back to your accommodation.
