WHICH BUSES WILL BE RUNNING?
More details will be available nearer the time, but there will be a few visiting buses, as well as most of our "regulars".
WHERE DO I PARK MY CAR?
We are situated on the A644 (Huddersfield Road). Free parking is available at the Ravensthorpe Retail Park. If you are using a Satnav, you
should enter the postcode WF13 3JR. Please do not park on Havelock Street, or Foundry Street near the Museum building.
IS THERE ACCESS FOR THE DISABLED?
The museum building is on one level, with no steps, so wheelchairs are welcome. There is a sloped ramp to the toilets and bar in The Royal
Public House, and the bus parking area at Havelock Street has no steps. Due to the age of our buses, it is not possible to carry wheelchairs or
unfolded baby buggies. Arriva will be lending us an easy-access bus, which will operate a few journeys on the shuttle service. Times of these
journeys will be published nearer the date of the event. If you have any particular needs, please call us on 0844 504 0089 and we will do our
best to accomodate you or provide assistance.
