Parking is free of charge to all visitors on campus during the weekend and all visitors will be allowed access to the University campus in order to park – you can often park right outside the door!
During the weekdays there is limited parking access at the Lapworth Museum of Geology, and as always we would encourage our visitors to use public transport.
If however you would prefer to visit us via car during the week; when approaching the University you will be directed to our multi-story car park, the North Car Park. This is a pay and display car park, and is a short 10 minute walk from the Museum (see link below).
Should you be a visitor with a Blue Badge, please approach the University campus via our ring road (see our Edgbaston Campus Map above), inform the security staff of your needs and you should be allowed on site. There are a small number of blue badge spaces adjacent to the Museum.
Please note the museum and its staff are unable to reserve parking spaces for members of the public (blue badge holders or otherwise).
