Travel by bike

NUH encourages visitors to use cycling as a more environmentally-friendly form of transport.


Directions and travel

There are excellent cycle tracks leading to QMC. The UK Charity Sustrans, in partnership with NUH and Cycle City Guides, have produced an NUH Cycle Map. To view this map please click here. You can plan your journey to the hospital online by visiting the National Cycle Journey Planner.

Alternatively, if you're cycling around Nottingham the free online cycle maps of the north and south of the city provide lots of information and tips to help you get around safely and easily.

Both maps have also now been combined and updated on a city-wide cycle map, produced by Nottingham City Council. Free copies can be collected from a variety of locations including the NUH Health & Wellbeing office at Curie Court (call ext 64771 first), libraries, leisure centres and the Tourism Information Office. The City Council would also be happy to send you one - please email or call 0115 876 3942 with your details.

You can see the map and find out more information on the City Council website at

There are also cycle maps produced by Nottingham City Council showing Hucknall, Strelley and Clifton commuter cycle routes.
