Public Transport

Shuttle Bus

If you are travelling by public transport, we will be running a shuttle bus from Bletchley Railway Station to the site.

The provisional timetable for this is:

  • Friday afternoon/evening
  • Saturday morning
  • Sunday afternoon/evening
  • Monday morning


Bletchley Station is the closest, with trains to London Euston, Birmingham, etc

If you travel by train, you may be interested in the 2FOR1 offer for Bletchley Park (requires sign up in advance and printing)


Closest airports are (in order) LTN, LHR, BHX. LGW and STN are also possible. Minicab taxis (pre-booked) from airports to site:

LTN ~35GBP 40 mins
LHR ~65GBP 70 mins

National Express run coaches from major airports to nearby Milton Keynes Coachway - TODO - how to get from MK Coachway to site.



If you have spare seats consider offering them on the Car_Share Page, this will also help split the cost of fuel and parking.

The post code of the site is MK17 0BU, and most sat nav systems will do a reasonable job of getting you there. To reduce the disturbance to our neighbours, please avoid driving through the towns of Bletchley and Newton Longville if possible. If you're coming from the M1 motorway, please follow the following route:

Coming From the M1

  1. Leave the M1 at exit 14 (signposted Milton Keynes/Newport Pagnell)
  2. Head towards Milton Keynes/A509 (S)
  3. At the first large roundabout (Milton Keynes has lots of roundabouts) take the A4146/Childs Way towards Aylesbury/Milton Keynes South
  4. At the next roundabout, take the first exit (A4146/Tongwell Street towards Aylesbury).
  5. Carry on along the A4146, crossing over three roundabouts.
  6. At the next roundabout, take the third exit (A4146/All through traffic)
  7.  Straight ahead at the next roundabout (Milton Keynes South & West). You'll pass a lake.
  8. At the next roundabout, take the first exit (A5 South Dunstable/Aylesbury)
  9. At the next (!) roundabout, take the third exit (A4146 Gt. Brickhill/Water Eaton)
  10. Cross straight over two more roundabouts, following the signs to Aylesbury
  11. At the next roundabout, take the second exit to Drayton Parslow/Newton Longville.
  12. You'll be pleased to hear that was the last roundabout you'll encounter (the 12th!)
  13. Go past the first junction (with a turning towards Newton Longville)
  14. At the next crossroads, turn right towards Newton Longville along Newton Road.
  15. Just as you enter Newton Longville ("please drive carefully") the road turns sharply right. Take the left at this junction (it should be signposted EMF).


If you are driving you will need to buy one parking ticket per car. There is no nearby public parking. Please don't park elsewhere as you will inconvenience our neighbours or block access to the site.

Taxi Dropoffs

These will likely be the same location as the shuttle bus drop off point
