By car:

We will do our best to mark the routes in with Tac signs.  The two main routes are:

  • From the A14, turn off on Junction 26 towards St Ives (A1096).  Turn left at the second roundabout into Meadow Lane and follow the one-way system via Cromwell Place and Oliver Road into East Street, turn right into Globe Place, first left into North Road, right into Ramsey Road, first left into Westwood Road and follow to Burgess Hall.
  • From the A1/A1(M), take the A14 and at the first roundabout (Junction 23) take the first exit towards Huntingdon and March (A141).  At the fourth roundabout, take the second exit onto the A1123 (Huntingdon Road) and go through Wyton and Houghton.  At the traffic lights in St Ives turn right into Ramsey Road, then second right into Westwood Road and follow to Burgess Hall.

There is a large car park just outside the hall, but as this is shared with the Sports Hall we ask all drivers to park responsibly.  Traders will be parking on the adjacent tennis courts.

By public transport:

The main east coast railway line passes through Huntingdon, which is the nearest railway station to St Ives and is between 45 minutes and an hour from London.  Buses run from Huntingdon to St Ives.  You are advised to check timetables before departing.
