How to get to us

We are central to both Newcastle and Durham, with approximate bus journey times of 30 minutes from both locations.

Bus 21 (Angel) from Newcastle & Durham stops outside Memorial Cottages, which is a matter of seconds away from us.

For more information, visit

You can also cycle as there are cycling lanes on Durham Road and cycle parking in the yard.


Is somewhat limited Monday to Friday, 9 to 5. Weekends, we have the use of the Clarity House Car Park.

However, 'on street' parking is available adjacent to Thought Foundation. Please park responsibly, never on Durham Road please!

We are a five minute walk from Birtley town centre where there is ample parking on Harraton Terrace (behind the high street).

If you are attending a large event, we recommend you try and use public transport. If you do drive, we recommend you allow a bit of extra time to find a parking spot near our venue.

Free admission (charges may apply to some exhibitions)
