Visiting Us

Please contact us first to make an appointment. The nearest train station is Bath Spa. There are trains between London and Bath roughly every half hour. We can pick you up from the station or arrange for a taxi to bring you to Wells.

If you are driving, you can use our free customer parking, which is at the back of the house within a public car park off Chamberlain Street. If you are using satnav or Google Maps, input the postcode BA52TY. Drive into the car park and continue around it to the far side. Then look for our garden which is down behind a low wall. Park in front of one of the signs for Avenue House and come down to the house through the garden or phone us to let us know that you have arrived.

If using what3words park at ///bulldozer.teachers.campfires.
