The Museum is a short walk from the Car Park, follow the signs which lead past the front of the Leisure Centre and down into the park, bearing left.

Parking

There is free parking in the Leisure Centre Car Park.

Coach parking is available at the top end of the Leisure Centre car park. Unfortunately, there is no Coach drop-off or parking directly outside the Museum.

For accessible parking there are designated parking bays directly outside the Museum. Enter Stratford Park and keep to the left, go past all the main car parking areas. The road rises up to a barrier. Use the intercom on the driver's side to gain access (this is controlled by the Leisure Centre, not the Museum). Follow the signs and road right around, past the back of the Leisure Centre, through a small car park next to the Leisure Centre, then turn left (into the park) and immediately left again into a tree-lined  avenue to arrive outside the Museum. Be aware of pedestrians. Please park in the designated area by the Museum railings, not on the turning circle in front of the gates and the Mansion House. When leaving by this route the barrier goes up automatically.
