Blog-Con Directions from The Victoria Centre

Directions To Blog-Con From The Victoria Centre

For all the bloggers and friends going to Blog Con but leaving the car away from Foundry. It struck me that a fair amount of us may want to park at one of the many Park and Ride locations. The tram locations have great service with Trams running from 6am till midnight Saturday and 11PM Sunday so would be perfect to park at as it's free to park and about £3.50 for a return ticket. Two adults can have a return for £5.

The best bet if you do this or come via the train or bus is head for the Victoria Shopping Centre (the main bus station is at the Vic Centre as us locals call it). 

To follow these directions you need to leave the Vic Centre from the ground level passing Ernest Jones Jewellers and it's less than a five minute walk. 

The exit is a longish corridor. Ernest Jones was on your left hand side. You can see a white building through the doors.

Follow the path from the entrance towards the road and the crossing. When you cross the road go past the white painted cafe and follow the path round towards the main road.

The path as you can see is nice and wide. You will see an Aldi food-store on the opposite side of the main road. 

Close up of the view of Aldi you are aiming for. Cross the road and turn to the right and down the hill.

You will see a pub called The Forrester, you will need to try and walk past this!

on the opposite side of the road is an Halfords, directly opposite this is the side street you need to go down. It's called St Mary St. and this is where Foundry are based.

Go down the side street and next to a tire garage is the Foundry building and all the fun you could wish for.


  1. See you there Ian.. will give you a bell later to sort out meet up so we can get set up early

  2. @ Fran and Ray, I hold little hope that Postie will be able to get the pair of you past the pasty shop and the pubs

    @ Dave, I am in each evening, been finishing late but have to get some normal finishes to be fit for the weekend


  3. who's going to get me out of the pasty shop

    1. A load of lead with your name on it might help ;-)
