By bus or train 

If you are travelling from outside Leicester you may opt to travel to either Leicester or Loughborough Train Stations and then continue your journey by bus to Coalville (bus parks are a few minutes walk from either station and are clearly sign posted). 

  • From Leicester you will need to pick up Bus Routes 29 or 29a from St Margaret’s Bus Station.
  • From Loughborough you will need to pick up Bus Route 126 to Coalville from High Street.

Tickets should be purchased for Coalville Town Centre. All bus routes drop off in Memorial Square and the BSHF offices are a 2-minute walk from your drop-off point. Returning buses run from Memorial Square.

Alternatively you could continue your journey by taxi to BSHF. From Leicester Train Station (30 minutes) or Loughborough Station (15 minutes) take a taxi directly to BSHF giving the address shown above. There is a taxi rank outside the BSHF office for your return journey to the train station.
