Getting To Your Training Venue In Sheffield

You can get to Sheffield from anywhere all over the UK using the Sheffield Railway station. It’s the busiest station in South Yorkshire so there are trains running every minute of the day from local and national towns and cities. 

Sheffield Station, Sheaf St, Sheffield City Centre, Sheffield S1 2BP.

The venue, Best Western Plus Quays Hotel, is an easy five-minute walk from Sheffield Station. Start by walking southeast on the station for 108ft and continue onto Turner Street for another 512ft. When you get to the Park Square roundabout, take the 3rd exit onto exchange Pl/B6073 and keep going right for 243ft, and you’re at your destination.


If you’re planning on driving to our location for training, there’s a paid private parking lot on site. And for those who want to access Sheffield’s leading shopping malls or want to grab a bite at the city centre, we suggest you try these parking spaces;
