Additional Information


There is limited parking at Austin Court - we have therefore noted below some alternatives, if the car park is full.

Nearest parking:
  • National Indoor Arena (pay and display)
Limited street parking:
  • Side streets opposite the NIA (payment meters)
  • South side of Broad Street (A456)
  • At the end of Cambridge Street at the junction of Summer Row (A457) - the entrance is in Brindley Drive

Please note that as well as being further away, the above alternatives are generally more expensive than the NIA car park.
