Finding the Church
The Church is on the south side of Town Hall Square, between the Gallowtree Gate and Market Street shopping areas. It is 5 minutes walk from the Railway Station. Pedestrian and cycle access is very easy from all parts of the city centre. Some buses drop off on Horsefair Street on the opposite side of Town Hall Square from the church, many others use the Charles Street bus stops, a short walk away.
Bishop Street has vehicle access from Granby Street, which is itself a one way street running north. However it is not directly accessible from London Road. To get to Granby Street at present, either:
drive north along Charles Street, first left into Northampton Street, and right into Granby Street, or
turn from Tigers Way into S. Albion Street, left along Dunkirk Street, Right down Wellington Street, Right along Chatham Street, and left into Granby Street.
Once you are on Granby Street, go straight on at the Belvoir Street junction and turn next left into Bishop Street. The church is three quarters of the way along the street, on the left hand side.
There are metered parking spaces along one side of Bishop Street. There are also metered bays in surrounding streets, up to 3 hrs, or longer-term in various local car parks. There are disabled badge holder spaces and an unloading bay in Bishop Street.
After 6.00pm each evening, and all day on Sundays the metered bays are FREE. There is also evening parking on surrounding streets, on single yellow lines.
All parking restrictions apply on Sundays, except that the metered bays are free.
