Disabled parking

Our disabled parking spaces by the side of our building on Southshore Road will be available, but as we expect a high number of visitors, these may be in limited availability.

The next nearest car park with disabled spaces is Quarryfield Road Car Park, which is approximately an 8-minute walk away.

While we can't guarantee a space, we recommend arriving early for the best chance to secure one. Baltic's building opens at 10am so you are welcome to come in, explore the new Michael Rakowitz: The Waiting Gardens of the North exhibition, and enjoy a drink or bite in Baltic Kitchen before heading to the Art Car Boot Fair at 11am.
