The Museum is less than 5 minutes walk from this car park and Pannett Park may be entered on foot at the top of Chubb Hill near the roundabout with St. Hilda's Terrace.
Coach Drop Off point
Coaches may drop off visitors either at the top of Chubb Hill (see downloadable map) or opposite the main Pannett Park gates in St Hilda's Terrace. Please note it is not possible to turn at the latter point.
