Getting to your training venue in Derby 


A good choice of transport to get to the venue in Derby is to take the train. If you are using this option, then you need to head to the train station in Long Eaton, which is detailed below:
Long Eaton Train Station 
Long Eaton, Nottingham NG10 3GL, United Kingdom

From the train station, the easiest route to take is to jump in a taxi as the venue at the Novotel is just 2.1 miles up the B6002. The Novotel hotel is situated midway between Nottingham and Derby and is located at junction 25 just off the M1. 


The Novotel hotel has parking available. If you are heading into Derby city centre at lunchtime or after the course, then these car parks will serve you well:

If you are travelling a significant distance to the course, you may be looking for accommodation. The Novotel where the course is based is reasonably priced. The hotel has free Wi-Fi and a restaurant that provides an excellent breakfast for guests. There is also the ibis budget hotel in Derby, which is excellent value for money. Other higher-priced options include the Jurys Inn and the Holiday Inn. Check out other hotels here.
