Our office is around a 25 minute walk from Cheltenham Spa station. You can follow the Honeybourne Line - a disused railway line that's been turned into a cycle/walking path - which takes you from the station into town.

There is a taxi rank at the station (taxis cost around £6-£7). You can also take bus route D from the station forecourt (ask the driver for the Chapel Walk stop).


There are a number of short-stay car parks close to our office.

You can also use the Arle Court or Cheltenham Race Course park and rides. Buses will take you into Cheltenham town centre.
