Parking

Cars

The Gallery has three disabled parking bays for blue badge holders only. Access is via Forest Road. The Gallery gates are kept locked to prevent unauthorized parking. Blue badge holders are therefore asked to call the Gallery on the number at the foot of this page when they arrive and someone will come and let you in. If you don't have a mobile phone you can call us in advance so we know to expect you.

There is no other parking at the Gallery, and parking in the local area is very limited. It is therefore advisable to come by public transport if at all possible. The Gallery is situated within a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ).  There is a pay and display car park at the Town Hall Complex on Forest Road, approximately 5 minutes walk away. There is also a small pay and display car park on Bedford Road, adjacent to the Gallery. However this is often busy.

Coaches

There is a designated coach parking bay located in Forest Road between Hawthorne Road and the pedestrian crossing.
