Travel by car and parking
QMC is on the western side of the city, just on the east side (inside) of the Nottingham ring road at its junction with the A52. The A52 crosses the M1 at junction 25.
Leave the M1 motorway at junction 25, and take the 'A52 to Nottingham', past Stapleford, Bramcote and Wollaton Park. As you pass the university on your right you will come to a large traffic island with QMC on the right immediately after the island. Turn right here, take the first slip road on the left into the hospital grounds and continue around the hospital perimeter road.
