Parking information:

The new Visions Children’s Centre has been allocated 10 parking spaces in South Street Car Park, opposite the main entrance to Rutland County  Museum.

These spaces are designated for families to park in while attending an event/session at the Children’s Centre. The space must be vacated when you complete your event/session to allow other families to park there.

These spaces will be numbered, so you will need to remember which space you are parked in and confirm your registration number when you arrive at the Centre.

These spaces will be available to Visions families only from 9.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.
