Please be aware that the City is currently seeing a high level of demand for taxis and, as a result, waits are long.  We advise you to book your taxis, for both arrival and return, in advance.


There are two pedestrian entrances – one from the Viking Way and one from the Bus stop on Canwick Hill.  If you are planning to walk from the City you should allow 20-30 minutes.  Please be aware that the Viking Way entrance can be slippery when wet and there is no tarmac path linking it to the Canwick Hill pavement.  This gate is closed between the beginning of November to the end of February.  If you do need access during this period, please call 01522 514755.


Access to the site is via the main entrance or from the Pedestrian access on Canwick Hill (there are some shallow steps here).  Cycle racks are provided at the front of the building.  We have a puncture repair kit at Reception, should the need arise.


We have a turning circle and coach parking alongside the main car park.  Please pre- book your coach with our events team
