Getting Here

Where We Are

Kelmscott Manor is located 3 miles from Lechlade. Signposted from both the A417 and the A4095, visitors can easily travel by car. Follow the brown heritage signs to our car park.

*Please note that due to the temporary closure of Halfpenny Bridge in Lechlade we are not currently accessible via the A361 from Highworth. An alternative route is to use the A420 to Faringdon and then rejoin the A417 to Buscot.

The Manor also has private mooring on the Thames and visitors also arrive by cycle or walking along the Thames path.

Travel by Car

Free Parking is situated next to St George’s Church in Kelmscott. For Sat Nav, the postcode for the car park is GL7 3HG.

There is a short walk from the car park to the Manor (approximately 10 to 12 minutes). Download our Village Map here for the route through the village. Brown heritage signs will direct you to the manor. Please respect the privacy of our neighbours.

A free shuttle minibus will take visitors who are unable to make the walk to the Manor.

The car park is closed and locked at 5.30pm on our public open days.

Unfortunately, due to our remote location, there is no direct public transport to the Manor except a limited Saturday service from Faringdon during the summer.

The nearest public transport is either the S6 bus from Oxford or Swindon which stops at Faringdon or the 77 bus from Cirencester to Highworth, which stops at Lechlade. Both bus routes are run by Stagecoach.

During the summer months we are a stop on the new Three Counties Tourist Bus route that runs on Saturdays from Faringdon. The route will give you three hours at your chosen destination and to welcome those arriving on the bus we will be offering a free cup of tea or coffee in our tearoom, all you need to do is show a valid bus ticket on arrival and you will be given a voucher to claim your free drink.
