From Sealdah, hop in any bus coming to PTS (opposite to Race Course) and catch any CTC bus going over the new Bridge. It will drop you close to Shalimar Station. By taxi, take AJC Bose Road from Sealdah, continue same road till PTS, then climb the fly over connecting new bridge over Ganges and cross the river. Shalimar Station is just other side of River, you can even see the Station from the Fly Over.
Agree with asish da. It is advisable to take a taxi direct from Sealdah because you must be having luggage with you. Boarding buses with luggage specially in the stretch from PTS/Rabindra Sadan to Shalimar is difficult since most of them are Mini buses (except CTC) and remain jampacked in the evening.
From Sealdah Court side you get a direct bus to Shalimar Station (mini white bus).. the bus takes max 1 hour to reach. Its route Sales Tax-> Sealdah->Moulali->Esplanade->Rabindra Sadan->Toll->Mandirtala->Shalimar (via B Garden)
Quote:I am afraid, there is not much of (if any at all) a choice for accommodation near Shalimar station. There are a few mid range hotels near Howrah station, and plenty of choices once you cross the river and enter Kolkata.

Quote:I think it would be better if you stay in hotel/lodge near Howrah station, as it would be helpful for you to board the train. You can even try the Howrah Rail Yatri Niwas.
Quote:I am surprised that our resident pedant has not advised you to catch a tram. Looking at this map your best chance might be to get a taxi.
