How to get to Donington Park

Donington Park is situated right at the heart of England, just minutes from M1 junction 23a and MOTO Donington Park Motorway Services and Travelodge, or junction 24 southbound. What’s more, Donington Park is easily accessible internationally via East Midlands International Airport, only 2 miles away.

From the North – Leave the M1 at junction 24 and merge onto the A453, then at the roundabout take the 4th exit continuing onto the A453 (signposted Tamworth, Birmingham). At the next roundabout, take the 3rd exit for the A453 (signposted East Midlands Airport, Diseworth, Donington Park).

Remain on the A453 by taking the 1st exit at the roundabout, follow the road adjacent to the airport, then again take the 1st exit at the second roundabout.

Once at the traffic lights, keep on the left to go straight on, and take the first right onto Melbourne Lane.

The Donington Park entrance is half a mile on the right.  

From the South – Leave the M1 at junction 23a, then merge onto the A42 (signposted Stoke). At the roundabout take the 2nd exit onto the A453 (signposted East Midlands Airport, Diseworth, Donington Park).

Remain on the A453 by taking the 1st exit at the roundabout, follow the road adjacent to the airport, then again take the 1st exit at the second roundabout.

Once at the traffic lights, keep on the left to go straight on, and take the first right onto Melbourne Lane.

The Donington Park entrance is half a mile on the right.  

For those arriving via the A42, follow the signs onto the A453 at Tonge.

Public Transport

By Air – the nearest airport is East Midlands. This is just a short taxi ride away from the track.

By Rail – the nearest railway station is  East Midlands Parkway – and this has regular trains to and from London. From there it’s a short taxi ride to the track.

By Coach – National Express coaches run regularly to East Midlands Airport  and, again, it’s a simple matter of a short taxi ride from there to the track.

Animals

Please note that animals/pets are not permitted on site at any time, with the exception of Guide Dogs and other Service Dogs.
