By Car: Discovery is based on Blandford Square in Newcastle upon Tyne. The museum can be found just off the A6082 from Redheugh Bridge heading onto St James' Boulevard or from the A186 from Westmorland Road heading onto St James' Boulevard. Parking is available outside the museum, but it is extremely limited and gets very busy. We would recommend travelling by public transport or parking at the Times Square car park behind Life Science Centre, which is a five minute walk from the museum.
