Frequently Asked Questions
Where is the blue badge parking?
If you are visiting the Royal Concert Hall we would recommend parking on Burton Street and the Blue Badge spaces at the side of the Concert Hall (you would approach these from Talbot Street).
If you are visiting the Theatre Royal we would recommend using the blue badge parking on Wollaton Street. Prior to approaching the Maid Marian roundabout, take the left turn onto Wollaton Street. Click here for more Blue Badge parking information.
My mother is unable to walk long distances and uses a walker. What is the easiest way to get her to her seat?
The lay-by, located outside the Royal Concert Hall’s main entrance on South Sherwood Street, can be used for the arrival and collection of customers to both venues. Please note that parking in the lay-by is not permitted. She can use her walker to get to her seat and we will look after this for her during the performance.
