Car parking and Park & Ride:
There are paying car parks close to the fair; we have not researched prices for these.

However, why not consider one of the three Park-and-Rides, two of which bring you to within yards of the fair? The Holiday Inn is adjacent to Nicholas Place, served directly by the 103 from Meynell's Gorse and the 203 from Enderby. If using the 303 from Birstall, the fair is a short walk from the Haymarket stop.

Please note that all public transport information is liable to change, so please check the information we provide. At the time of writing, parking is free and a day ticket on the bus 3.50 - or free for those with concessionary passes. The Park and Rides are to the South-West of the City at Enderby, to the West of the City on the A47 at Meynell's Gorse and to the North of the City on the A6 at Birstall.
Buses run every 15 minutes from Birstall and Meynell's Gorse. Buses run at 10-minute intervals on the Enderby service. To check fares and the up-to-date timetables on the Leicester Council website : Click on this link - opens in new tab
