Plan your Visit

The National Space Centre is located just off the A6, two miles north of Leicester City Centre, midway between Leicester’s inner and outer ring roads.

Brown road signs with a distinctive rocket logo will direct you from the arterial routes around Leicester.

We have over 400 parking spaces in our car park, including 23 enhanced accessibility spaces, charged at £3 per car and £5 per motorhome/minibus for the whole day (contactless or cash pay and display machines on site).
