Getting to the Castle

Situated in the heart of the town centre…

…we have excellent transport links.

The closest car parks are Britannia and Priory Street.

If you are arriving via train, we are a 20 minute walk from the main North Station which is now guided by the Fixing the Link walking route.

Our venues are fully accessible and suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

Our disabled facilities vary across our venues but most spaces include toilets, induction loops, level access into function rooms and wide doorways. We also have baby changing facilities.

Please discuss any particular needs in advance with the Events Team in advance.
