Disabled access information


By foot or bike

The Meeting House is a 10-15 minute walk from Nottingham City Centre.  There is provision for cycle parking outside the main entrance door to the Meeting House. You can also hire a bike on Shakespeare Street nearby: more details are available on the Citycard Cycles website.

By public transport

The Friends Meeting House is very near the city centre.  Nottingham Trent University tram stop is nearby in Goldsmith Street (see map below) on the lines to Hucknall and Phoenix Park.  The Meeting House is on top of a hill which is less steep via Chaucer Street. The trams display and speak the name of each stop as they approach it.  Tram timetable and fare information is available here. Many bus stops are also nearby, on Talbot Street, Wollaton Street, Derby Road and Canning Circus.   Public transport information is available from the Traveline website.

From the Railway Station or Broadmarsh Bus Station

Take any tram for Hucknall, Phoenix Park or Shipstone Street from the Nottingham station stop to Nottingham Trent University tram stop (see above).

From Victoria Bus Station

The Friends Meeting House is 15 minutes’ walk from Victoria Bus Station, via Shakespeare Street.  Alternatively, buses such as the Two and Rainbow 1 leave from Victoria Bus Station and stop on Derby Road next to the Cathedral, a five-minute walk from the Meeting House. Public transport information is available from the Traveline website.

By car

From the south and west you have to go through Canning Circus (see map below). As you leave Canning Circus, going east, fork left into Talbot Street and left at the next traffic lights into Clarendon Street.

From the north and east reach Clarendon Street from Peel Street or Waverley Street.  Goldsmith Street is for trams only.


There are good Park and Ride facilities provided by the Tram.

The on-street parking outside the Meeting House on Clarendon Street is in Pay and Display Tariff Zone 1, every day including Sundays, from 8am to 10pm. Peel Street and nearby roads are in the cheaper Zones 2 and 3.  No change is available, but you can pay by phone or online. More details on charges are available on the Nottingham City Council website.

Warning: Traffic wardens are very active, even on Sundays, and will give tickets for cars parked not in designated parking places; or without a valid displayed parking receipt; or parking in disabled areas without displaying a ‘disabled’ badge. Also, many ‘Residents Only’ spaces throughout Nottingham have had their restriction extended to include Sundays.

There are multi-story car parks nearby: they are expensive.

We have made every effort to ensure these details are correct, but please let us know if there are any errors or omissions.
