Where are we?

Getting There

Airport transfers to and from the Horncastle Arena will be arranged by the event organisers if you have requested this through the registration process. If you're making your own way there and you're unfamiliar with the venue, you will find the following information useful.

By Car

There is a large complimentary car park on site; however, space is subject to availability. We recommend carpooling or parking in nearby, well-lit streets.

For some events a Traffic Management Plan may be in place which will restrict entry and exit points. To see if there is a Traffic Management Plan in place for an event, visit

Disability Parking is available directly opposite the front entry of the Arena in the main car park. Only vehicles with the appropriate Mobility Pass will be allowed entry.

By Bus

Metro Bus Stops are located nearby on Lincoln Road and Whiteleigh Ave. Visit for more information and timetables.

By Taxi

Taxis are generally welcome to drop you off within the Arena precinct. There is a taxi rank available outside the main entrance of the Arena. If you require a taxi pick up post-event, we recommend you book this well in advance as taxis can be in high demand particularly later in the evening.
