Our address: Lincoln Drill Hall Free School Lane Lincoln LN2 1EY
Lincoln Drill Hall is situated right in the heart of the city, in the downhill area close to the pedestrian city centre.
The building backs out onto Broadgate, the main A15 route through Lincoln. If you remember the Drill Hall from pre 1999, please bear in mind that the building has effectively been ‘turned round’ since the refurbishment and the Broadgate entrance is now the back door! The new entrance is on Freeschool Lane next to the Central Library.
Lincoln Drill Hall is just five minutes walk from the Railway Station. From the main exit, turn right towards the dual carriageway, keeping the bus station on your left. Turn left up the hill towards the Cathedral. Turn left again after 300 yards when you reach St Swithin’s Church and then almost immediately right into Freeschool Lane. Lincoln Drill Hall is situated 150 yards on the right, immediately after the Central Library.
Entering Lincoln on the A15 from Sleaford / Boston you will drive over Pelham Bridge over the railway with the Cathedral clearly visible in front of you. At the traffic lights at the bottom of the bridge get into the left hand lane and then turn left after another 300 yards by St Swithin’s Church. Immediately on your right is Freeschool Lane, but it is a one-way street and you are at the wrong end! Go straight ahead and then bear right until you come to Silver Street where you need to turn right and keep in the right hand lane. Almost immediately on your right is Freeschool Lane again! You can either turn down here and attempt to park in the NCP car park next to the venue, or carry on to the lights, turn right and then get into the left hand lane and then turn left after 100 yards into Rumbold Street. Broadgate Car Park is now on your left and Rumbold Street NCP is on your right.
Coming down the hill into Lincoln on the A15 get into the left hand lane at the traffic lights at the large junction just past the Usher Gallery. Take the 3rd turning on your left (after about 200 yards) which is Rumbold Street. Broadgate Car Park is now on your left and Rumbold Street NCP is on your right. Walking back onto Broadgate you will see the rear entrance of Lincoln Drill Hall in between the Central Library and the Duke of Wellington Pub. Make your way through the Freeschool Lane NCP car park next to the pub to find the new front entrance to the venue.
Once you reach the A46 Lincoln Bypass follow signs to Lincoln central. At the fourth roundabout turn right into Lincoln central and you will go past the old Grandstand. Keep going until you get to the traffic lights (The Horse & Jockey is in front of you). Turn left and then get into the middle lane where you will turn immediately right, going past the County Offices. Follow the road until the next set of traffic lights (the New Life Church is on your left and the Odeon is on your right). Go straight ahead bearing left slightly into Mint Street (one-way). After 200 yards the road crosses the pedestrian High St and then expands into 3 lanes and becomes Silver Street. Get into the right hand lane and then after another 200 yards you will see Freeschool Lane on your right. You can either turn down here and attempt to park in the NCP car park next to the venue, or carry on to the lights, turn right and then get into the left hand lane and then turn left after 100 yards into Rumbold Street. Broadgate Car Park is now on your left and Rumbold Street NCP is on your right.
The venue itself has no parking, but the Broadgate Multi-Storey Car Park is the largest car park in the city with 450 spaces, and lies within 250 meters of the back of the building, just 3 minutes walk away. It is open 24 hours a day and is patrolled until midnight, with access from Rumbold Street.*
There is also an NCP car park with 70 spaces situated next to the venue on Free School Lane.
