Air ✈️

The closest major airport is Birmingham ✈(BHX), which is around 1hr40 by train to Ledbury station; or an hour by road.

Bristol ✈(BRS) and Cardiff ✈(CWL) are around 1hr40 by road, but poorly connected by public transport.

For those travelling long-haul, BHX is likely to be be most useful followed by LHR.

Driving πŸš—

If you plan to drive, you will need to buy a parking ticket (Β£15) or campervan ticket (Β£40).

The site is around 13 mins drive from the M50 Junction 2.

Plan your travel to the south gate (adjacent to A438) - postcode HR8 1RQ should get you there. The entrance to the site is 52Β°01'56"N 2Β°23'01"W / OS Grid SO 738 372.

Once you leave the motorway, follow signs towards Eastnor Castle, ignoring your sat nav which may try to take you through the town.
