Travelling by car

The Empress Building is located just 15 minutes from Junction 36 of the A1 Motorway, and 20 minutes from Junction 35 of the M1 Motorway, which gives it a fabulously accessible central location for most road networks.

A main dual carriageway runs alongside the town, and our venue is less than a minute from the main road. The best place to park is The Original Factory Shop, which is directly across the road from the Empress Building, and this is a huge, free car park. There are multiple other accessible car parks in the town, of which some will be free-to-park, and others will be pay-and-display.

Travelling by train

Mexborough Town has a serving railway station which is a few short stops from both mainline stations of Doncaster and Sheffield, although it is also easily accessed via either, from towns and cities such as Barnsley, Rotherham, Leeds and Manchester.

Our venue is a short walk from the station, although you may need to cross the dual carriageway. There is a safe and convenient crossing point less than a minute’s walk from our building, so be sure to cross safely at the designated spot.

Travelling by bus

Mexborough Town has a large bus station which receives services from the neighbouring towns and cities of Rotherham, Barnsley and Doncaster, all of which have further services to enable access to and from the larger cities of Leeds and Sheffield.

Our venue is directly across a small road from Mexborough Bus Station, which allow for excellent access for arriving and departing any events held at the Empress Building.
