City centre pay and display car parks are all within walking distance. The nearest car parks to Millennium Place are Bishop Street (CV1 1NN), West Orchards Shopping Mall, Fairfax Street and the Belgrade Plaza (CV1 4AJ).

By Train: Millennium Place is a 15-minute walk from the train station. Buses numbered 27 and 49 stop near Coventry Transport Museum.

By Bus: Most buses stop at Pool Meadow bus station or on Trinity Street, both of which are a 2 minute walk from the Big Screen. Coventry has north and south Park & Ride services and both the north and south routes have a stop-off point at the Junction of Corporation Street and Burges, which is very close to the Millennium Place. The North route operates from the AT7 Centre in Bell Green which is to the north of the city centre. This location is ideal for the M6 Junction 3 - A444.
