There is parking in Whiting Street, or if you are just collecting something, you can park briefly across the road.

Unfortunately as we are in a listed building with two steps down, it is difficult to access us, but not impossible if you have a helper. As an alternative, we're happy to bring products out to you for viewing or you can use Click & Collect on our website and we'll bring your purchases out to you.
