There is easy access from the A1 north and south and the venue.  The centre is based just off the A167. Take the 4th exit onto Front Street, then on the next roundabout; take the 1st exit onto Abbey Road. It would be best if you then took the next left onto Smithfield, and the centre will be on your next right.
