Walk or Bike!
We are thinking of our carbon footprint so if you can think ahead and try these options first…
Walk- Many people who visit the venue live within walking distance, even if it’s up or down a hill, if you’re able to walk enjoy it.
Bike- We are right on the National Cycle Network, we are a 2min ride from route 43, more info can be found on the two links below and it’s well worth cycling along this route as it’s a great journey. We also have bike racks outside the venue. Here is the link to the local cycle paths and active travel maps.
