The easiest way to access the museum is on foot. The museum is located on Museum Street, just a short walk from the centre of Saffron Walden. From the Market Square, walk up Market Hill towards St Mary’s Church, cross over Church Street and continue walking up Museum Street. You will see St Mary’s Church on your left and the museum gateway on your right. Go through the museum’s gates and as you walk up the drive you will see the museum in front of you.
Take care as there is a shared driveway and path.
There is an alternative route through the gates opposite The Common and also a gate on Church Street. From these gates, pedestrians can cross the field in front of the castle remains, by the tennis courts, if they want to avoid walking near cars.
The museum does have a car park on site, but parking is limited. There are a number of public car parks in Saffron Walden, which can be viewed here. The closest car park is at The Common and the closest long stay car park is at Swan Meadow. The postcode of the museum (for satnavs) is CB10 1BN. For directions to the museum by car, click here.
There is a designated accessible parking space.
The nearest railway station to Saffron Walden is Audley End, which is on the branch line between London Liverpool Street and Cambridge, with regular trains.
