London and on one of the main local lines out of the capital. To get to

- Purchase a ticket (you can usually find a roving
ticket chap inside the station if you come from the tube side rather
than the front entrance). Tickets cost approximately £5.00 ($8.00).
- Catch a train to St Albans (going North). Trains

not they come along regularly. The taxi fare is approximately £3.00

Getting to us by car is just as easy. St
Albans in located just off the major M25 and M1 motorways. From Heathrow:
- Leave Heathrow airport travelling North on the
M25. It will be signed to Watford/M40.
- Stay on the M25 past the Watford junctions until
you reach Junction 21A which is signed St Albans.
- Travel North on the M1 Motorway.
- Get off at Junction 6 which is signed
St Albans/M25. Junction 6 sounds a long way, but in actual fact
(for some strange reason) it is the second junction you can get off on
the M1 and is only about 15 miles from the start of the motorway.
The following directions are then applicable
- Follow the signs for St Albans. There are several
roads into the city, but they all lead into our street which is the main
road into St Albans. The following directions should make things easier
for you, but really all you need to do is follow the signs.
- After the motorway round-about, the second
round-about has a Shell Petrol (Gas) Station take the left
hand (first) exit signed to Chiswell Green/St Albans.
- This joins on to the B4630 which eventually
becomes Holywell Hill. Just keep on going. You will cross several more
round-abouts, several of which are almost joined
together and then pass
down a steep hill (St Stephens Hill). At the bottom of St Stephens Hill
you pass straight over the round-about and start to climb up Holywell
Hill. You will see a Jet petrol station on your right hand side as you
start to go up Holywell Hill.
- Approximately half way up the hill, look for the
first set of traffic lights which are immediately outside our front
- Parking: There is parking on the
left of Holywell Hill as you come up the road. Pick any spot you
see because we are not far. If you cannot find something, just before
the traffic lights/crossing, there is a road, Albert Street, on
the right and there is parking down this street.
