The Centre is located in the heart of the historic city of York. 

Walking from the train station:

  1. Turn right when exiting the station staying on the same side of the road as the station
  2. Continue over the bridge to the traffic lights
  3. At the traffic lights you will see the building in the photograph directly opposite you – this is the Bar Convent
  4. Cross the road and turn right with the Bar Convent on your left

Car parking /Park and Ride

Unfortunately, St Bede’s does not have car parking facilities. The nearest municipal car park is on Nunnery Lane. Directions from the train station as above but instead of turning right at the traffic lights go straight on. The car park is immediately on your left with the entrance further down the road. The charge for for 5 hours is currently £12 or for a full day £15.

An alternative would be to use the park and ride service.

Free parking is available at York Knavesmire on Knavesmire Road but it can get very busy if you don’t arrive early in the day. Walking from Knavesmire Road to St Bede’s can take 15 to 20 minutes.
