Leicester Quaker meeting house, at the top of the (A6) London Road hill and across the Victoria Park, is about one and a half miles south of the city centre and a mile from the railway station from which daily buses pass at quarter hourly intervals, hourly on Sundays.
Positioned as it is on the edge of the Clarendon Park area of the city and at the near end of Queens Road with its busy local shops and restaurants, the meeting house, with its quiet rooms and lovely green garden at the rear, has become an ideal place for many groups who use it throughout the week; Monday – Friday, 9.00 am – 10.00 pm; Saturdays, 9.00 am – 5.00 pm.
The meeting house consists of the meeting room, library and small meeting room on the level access ground floor; with WCs and an all-accessible WC. On the first floor there is a craft room, with adjoining small coffee room, accessed by stairs adjacent to the library; and Committee Room accessed by stair and stair-lift from the entrance lobby.
The 44A and 44 (44, not on Sundays) bus routes from and to the central bus and railway stations pass the meeting house. The nearest bus stop is the second stop in Victoria Park Road, immediately before the traffic lights where the bus turns left into Queens Road.
There is on-site parking for about 14 cars and racks for bicycles. Access is by the drive between the meeting house and the Drayton House flats.
Please be aware the Meeting has a lettings policy. No political parties or commercial groups are allowed.
All rooms are well lit and adequately heated/ventilated.
All rooms, except the Large Meeting Room, have curtains.
