From all directions: Simply follow the signs for Coventry city centre. We’re just off the Ring Road at junction 9, and that’s also how you gain access to the Belgrade Plaza Car Park which is clearly signed from the Ring Road.
Sat Navs: The generic post code for Belgrade Plaza is CV1 4AJ but please note this does not provide direct access to the car park; access is only found via the slip road at Junction 9. If you miss the junction don’t worry, it only takes a few minutes to go round again, just keep to the right until you’re ready to exit.
