Map and directions

Transport and parking

Please use town centre car parking, limited parking is available in the surrounding area of the park

The nearest station is Derby Train Station. It is then a 25 minute walk to the event, so we recommend taxi sharing with friends from the station. There are also many bus routes passing Darley Park.

Traffic disruptions on the day

On Sunday 12 July The Jenson Button Trust Triathlon, in aid of Cancer Research UK, is also taking place within Derby City Centre. With this in mind, we recommend arriving as early as possible to allow plenty of time to park and make your way in to the event.
