Location

The Museum is located just off Biggs Lane, a public road passing through Arborfield Garrison.

From Wokingham - Take the A329 westwards from the town centre, in the direction of Reading. Shortly after leaving the town centre, turn left at the mini roundabout and take the B3349, signposted Arborfield. Proceed over the level crossing at the station and carry straight on for approximately 3 miles. When you see the Garrison on the left, take the next turning (Biggs Lane) to the left. The Museum can be found on the left after approximately ½ mile.

From Reading - Take the A327, Aldershot Road out of Reading. After approximately 5 miles, the road passes through the village of Arborfield Cross. Proceed through the village. Soon after the sign for the 40 mph zone, there is a roundabout. Turn left (first exit) at this roundabout and then, after 200 yards, turn right into Biggs Lane. The Museum can be found on the left after approximately ½ mile.

From the A30/M3 - Take the A327 north from the A30, signposted Wokingham. If travelling towards London, the turning is on the left just after the end of a dual carriageway. If travelling away from London, the turning is on the right after Blackbushe Airport. Proceed for approximately 5 miles along the A327. At the roundabout, turn right (second exit) and then, after a further 200 yards, turn right again into Biggs Lane. The Museum can be found on the left after approximately ½ mile.

From Crowthorne/Bracknell Area - Take the Nine Mile Ride (B3430), heading west. Follow the road until the T junction at the end. Turn right into Park Lane, which shortly becomes Biggs Lane, and follow this road into the Garrison. The Museum can be found on the right, approximately 1½ miles from the end of Nine Mile Ride.

There is a large, free car park adjacent to the Museum.

By Public Transport
The area of the Museum is not particularly well served by the public transport system.

The nearest railway station is at Wokingham. This is located on the line from Waterloo to Reading and takes approximately 1 hour from Waterloo and 15 minutes from Reading. Buses run from Wokingham and Reading Stations to the Garrison, as detailed below. Taxis are also available from Wokingham Station at a cost of approximately £6 each way.

Bus Service 144 passes the museum and is run by Thames Travel. The timetable is available online or the company can be contacted on 01491 874216. Currently buses run once an hour, during the working day, from Monday to Saturday (there is no service on Sundays).

Information on local travel and bus services is also provided by Reading Buses and Wokingham District (Visiting the District), although these have not always proved to be up to date.
