We are very easy to access by road, train and bus.

Parking is prioritised for the disabled. Spaces for able-bodied drivers are limited but parking is easy in the inexpensive Sheffield Road public car park – less than a one minute walk from @ The Spectrum.

Numerous pay-and-display car parking facilities are available on Westgate and Sheffield Road very close to VAR and The Spectrum. The best option is the Sheffield Road car park, currently £1.80 for all day parking.
