Coming By Car

We are located right in the heart of Leicester City Centre just 20 minutes from the M1. Please follow signs towards the City Centre.  There are several car parks serving the centre but the Newark Street Car Park (LE1 5SN) is the nearest, most affordable car park.

Access for Loading 

Works to improve the footways in the Old Town Area are progressing so please note diversions may be in place.  For loading purposes only the gallery is accessible via the St Nicholas Circle (the Holiday Inn Roundabout) by turning left into Peacock Lane and then immediately right onto Southgates.  Then take the first left on to Friar Lane.  At the cross-roads turn left onto Grey Friars (here there are some pay and display spaces).  At the end of the street turn right the Loading bay is immediately on the right in front of Middleton's Restaurant, in the grand old National Westminster Bank Building and opposite Hollys, Harriman & Co, Veenos and Gelato Village.  You are permitted to wait here for loading and unloading only; disabled parking is not permitted in the loading area.


Disabled Access

We have a disabled entrance for the gallery and the nearest parking is on Grey Friars where there are four spaces reserved for the disabled and where you can park free of charge in one of the street's pay and display spaces.  A little further away, beside Wygeston's House on Applegate, there are seven wide disabled spaces.  These can be accessed from St Nicholas's Circle by turning left into Peacock Lane then immediately left onto Applegate where you will find the parking places on the left.  Applegate is a pedestrian preferred lane with two way traffic being operated on this small stretch, so do take care.

On Foot or Bike

The gallery is in a semi-pedestrianised area of the city and bicycle storage points are available at the entrance to St Martin's Square with some undercover storage close by.
