Turn off the Warminster - Bristol road (A36) opposite Skoda (with Green Park Tavern on corner); keep straight ahead and follow hedge in Upper Oldfield Park: look for Number 59 and Drachenfels on the stone gate pillar, the original name of the house in 1883. Number 59 is the 3rd entrance on the right from Lower Oldfield Park.


A taxi from the coach and railway stations costs about £5.50


From the station the following buses pass Upper Oldfield Park: 12 (Whiteway), 15, 18, U10, U18 and X18 (Bath SPA University direction). Ask for Lower Oldfield Park stop. For more information: www.traveline.info or 0871 200 22 33


I timed myself and it takes (me) 12 minutes to the theatre and 14 minutes to the station but depends of course on how quickly you walk and what you stop to look at on the way and so on. An indirect route would be via Beechen Cliff and take in the splendid bird's eye view of the entire town centre from Alexandra Park before descending by the way of the river and the station.
