How to get to us

We serve the whole of the East Midlands from our Nottingham and Leicester offices. Our Nottingham office is located in Beeston just a 10-minute drive away from the city centre and junction 25 of the M1. As we’re located on the A52 we’re easy to find and access, whichever direction you’re coming from. Our modern offices at Priory Island on Derby Road have plenty of on-site parking for when you need to drop by.

If you are travelling by public transport from the city centre, the i4 bus to Sandiacre travels past our office, and leaves from the Broadmarsh Bus Station, which is particularly convenient if you have got the train or another bus into the city. You’ll need to get off at the stop next to Boundary Road.

Another common route into Nottingham is the Indigo bus from Derby. If you use this, change at any stop in Beeston that serves the 36 and Y36 routes headed for the city centre (e.g. the Marlborough Road stop on Beeston’s High Road). You’ll need to take either one of these routes to the Derby Road stop (UN27), and then head round the corner, where you’ll find us.
