    Transport and parking

    Please follow our car parking signs from the venue

    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.

    Travel:

    Participants and spectators are advised that there are a number of road closures on the day around the 5 Lamps and area and Kedleston Road. Where possible people should use:

    • From the north - use the A6 or A38 to access the A61 and A6 to access Darley Park and the surrounding car parks.
    • From the south - use the A38 or A52 to access the A61 and A6 to access Darley Park and the surrounding car parks.
