Atlantic College is located in the 12th century St Donats Castle on the dramatic South Wales coastline, overlooking the Bristol Channel. Students and visitors enjoy the serenity and beauty of the formal terraced gardens that lead from the castle down to the seafront. From there, the coastal path running along the tops of the cliffs offers refreshing walks with views out over the Bristol Channel to North Somerset.

The village of St Donats is a 45-minute drive from Cardiff, Europe's youngest capital, 20 minutes from Cardiff's International Airport, and two and a half hours by train or car from London. The local town, Llantwit Major, has a local rail link to Cardiff and Bridgend. Llantwit Major is part of the Vale of Glamorgan Train Line from Bridgend to Cardiff.
