There are designated parking bays on Level 11 (The NIA Main Entrance is on Level 11) of the South Upper Car Park, situated off Sheepcote Street.
If these parking bays are full, please park on any car park level which has an odd number, where a lift will take you to Level 11 for the Main Entrance.
Visitors who have a disability arriving in vehicles over 2.1m in height (Minibuses or Ambilifts), will be directed to the Olympian Suite entrance via the VIP ramp situated off Sheepcote Street. Here visitors can disembark, and traffic officers will then direct the vehicle to the nearest parking bay.
Please advise Box Office if travelling by Ambilift.
If arriving by car or taxi, but do not require parking, use the VIP ramp situated off Sheepcote Street, access to The NIA is via the Olympian Suite entrance, vehicles then exit via the ramp.
If travelling by public transport, access to The NIA is either by the Olympian Suite entrance or by the Stage Door situated off King Edward's Road.
Please check your tickets for the "door open time", and arrive in plenty of time. The NIA can be extremely busy before the start of a concert or event.
