Getting to the Academy

There is unfortunately no parking at the Academy on weekdays (if your course is on a weekend or evening, you may park behind the Academy as we can overflow into the surrounding business's spaces). You will receive details of finding our carpark on enrolment.

The following places have free on street parking within 5-10 mins walk for those of you with courses during the week: 

The Whiteway GL7 2ER (opposite the Cirencester Rugby Club) 

Barton Lane GL7 2EB

You can also choose paid parking. The Abbey Grounds Car Park and Old Station Carpark are around £6.50 for the day and both within 5-7 minutes’ walk but can be very busy. Beeches Carpark is around 10 minutes’ walk away and £2.00 for the day.
