Directions to the Venue
Travelling by Car – Use M1 Junction 25 (South) or 26 (North) and follow signs for the City Centre. Where possible avoid using M1 Junctions 23a 24 and 24a (A453) as these are often heavily congested.
Motorpoint Arena Nottingham
As there is NO PARKING at the arena we have suggested 2 places to park, these are a very short walk (less than 5 minutes) from the arena and pretty much the cheapest places to park in the city. If you’re using a van we suggest Queens Road car park, which is situated near Hooters Bar & Grill, if this is full there is another car park located at Queensbridge Road, alternatively the Train station also has a large car park.
