Transport - I found the place OK, spot on directions

Hello,
I am coming to this on Monday, I will be travelling by train. Upon planning my journey I was just wondering what the distance of the tennis centre is from the train centre. Is it easy to find???
I see there are buses that run from the city centre, how reliable are these?
Would it be easier for me to just hop in a taxi at the station?
Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Re: Transport - finding the place

I think the buses were pretty good when I went (2004) but I had to walk a little way to the bus station, then took a while to figure out which I needed!

I think if you can find Nos.13, 33 and 34 from City Centre, then you are safe. Taxi may be a bit costly, up to you of course!

Thanks.
I may get the bus then, it will probably work out cheaper.
Is it a fair distance from the station? Will it cost an arm and a leg to go by taxi?

Re: Transport - finding the place

it shouldn't cost more than £5 or £6 by taxi. If you stop at Beeston it should be less. Bus is about £1.30 i think.

Re: Transport - finding the place

You can take the taxi from Nottingham train station - fare will be around £8...taxi rank immediately outside to the right.

Alternatively, take a right out of the train station exit and follow the road down for about 3 minutes' walk until you get to Broadmarsh bus station. Take a Rainbow 5 bus (purple coloured with Derby as its destination) and ask to be dropped off at "Tennis centre" - it is actually a designated bus stop. The fare is £1.30. Buses run every 5 minutes.

If you want to take the bus back to Broadmarsh Bus station, take the Rainbow again, but on the other side of University Boulevard.

I went yesterday (Monday). Thanks for your directions, they were spot on .
I had a great time yesterday. Anyone thinking of going should try and go, the set-up they have there is very good.
