Getting to the Venue

Parking on site will be extremely restricted on the day and delegate numbers are limited and less than our normal LIN meetings. It is therefore been agreed to offer places to this event initially to people who can travel by public transport.

Transfer from Norwich Station will be available for people coming on the trains from Cambridge, and London that arrive at 9.30am. Return transport will be provided at the end of the meeting.

To book your priority place please indicate in the Other Requirements box when booking which train you will travel to Norwich on. Local Norfolk delegates are asked to meet up at the station if possible or travel together to reduce traffic on site.

Limited street parking will be available on Clover Hill Road which is a short walk from Bowthorpe Care Village.


Priority will be given to members in the Eastern region as well as to those travelling by public transport.
