Rutland Street NCP LE1 1TQ

Highcross/John Lewis Car Park LE1 4QJ

Rooftop LE1 4FY

Validated parking will be available at the Highcross Rooftop, John Lewis and NCP Rutland Centre, all of which are just a short walk away from the Curve (Rutland Street is a 30 second walk, Highcross is around a 10 minute walk). Parking at the NCP is limited so where possible please park at the Highcross.

Validation is different this year. If you have parked in the Highcross/John Lewis car parks you can obtain a ticket from reception as usual. If you have parked at the NCP Rutland Centre you will need to have your ticket validated at the Curve Café on the day you are due to leave. Please be aware that the NCP ticket will be invalid at midnight once validated.

From the South

Come off the M1 at J21 to take the M69/A5460 exit to Coventry/Leicester. Take the A5460 exit (3rd) and continue over one roundabout. On arrival into Leicester, follow the signs for Cultural Quarter and Curve.


Walk out of the main entrance of the train station and turn right, continuing on St. George’s Street until opposite Granby Street.
