Colchester Arts Centre
SEE THE MAP BELOW FOR DIRECTIONS
PLEASE NOTE! The pedestrian bridge from St Marys Car Park is closed from 9th January onwards, unfortunately we do not know the date these works will be completed. You can still use the pedestrian crossing at the other end of the car park, adjacent to Crouch Street. It's still step free.
There is no parking outside the venue in Church Street, except for performers / contractors loading in and out.
We reccommend parking in St Mary's Car Park on Balkerne Hill. After parking, cross the pedestrian crossing adjacent to Crouch Street and turn left (passing the Embassy Buffet on your right.) You will eventually arrive at a set of stone steps on your right - go up these and you'll see the arts centre right in front of you. For step free access, proceed past the stone steps and take the next tight turn (through the old Balkerne Gate). Leaving the Mercury Theatre on your right follow the path around to the right until you reach a T junction - now turn right on to Church Street. Proceed to the end of Church Street and the main entrance is on your left (Daytime Box Office entrance further back on your left).
There are various other parking options - all listed here
WHY NOT CAR SHARE AND SAVE MONEY WHILE HELPING THE ENVIRONMENT?
Colchester Borough Council operated the excellent LOVE UR CAR scheme which offers discounted car parking if you share your trip with others. There are 4 dedicated bays for Love UrCar users in St Marys Car Park - why not give it a go? You need to register first.
