Car and coach parkingWe don't have visitor parking at the Engine Shed, but car and coach drivers can use the public car park 350m away for a small charge. More than 20 accessible parking bays are available. There are electric charging points. Additionally, there are two accessible parking spaces offering free parking for Blue Badge holders. These are located to the west of the building, along the road running parallel to the train station.
