Located in the heart of Nottingham city centre, the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham is easily accessible by all methods of transport.
We don’t have an on-site car park, but our city centre location means there are plenty of car parks nearby - view our car park map to find the nearest city centre car parks.
During popular events the closest car parks to the Arena will be the busiest, and will have longer queue times. Please allow extra time for queues, or find an alternative car park on our car park map .
The nearest tram stop to the Arena is the Lace Market stop on Fletcher Gate, which is just a three minute walk from the venue – making it a convenient and green way to get to the city centre!

Long-distance and local bus services operate into Nottingham’s two main bus stations; Broadmarsh and Victoria, which are a ten minute walk from the Arena. Several Nottingham City Transport (NCT) bus services drop you right outside the venue and Trent Barton has several bus services which run past it - visit their websites for timetable information.
Please note: On Sunday 9 July 2017, Broadmarsh bus station closed to make way for a new bus station and car park. The work is expected to last for two years, and during that time bus services will relocate to streets surrounding the bus station and train station. Please visit the operator's websites above for detailed journey information.
