Driving Directions to Loughborough For Walk 10.

NOTE - PARKING

There is a large multi-storey car park on Beehive Lane (directions below), and there is also one at the Carillon Court Shopping Centre. Alternatively, there is free parking in front of the Council Offices and Southfields Park on Leicester Road. Please do NOT park in the grounds of the endowed schools.

From a security point of view, it is safest to leave you car in one of the multi-storey car parks. While Loughborough's crime rate is no worse than any other town, there are car thieves operating in the area, and so the usual precautions should be taken.
