Travelling by Car
From the south-west or south-east, travel along the M4 and head north at Junction 17 on
the A429 for five miles.
From the north-west or north, travel south along the
M5 to junction 11a. Follow signs to Cirencester and then a further 10 miles south to
Malmesbury along the A429.
On arriving in Malmesbury, follow signs to the
Long Stay car park.
From the long stay car park you will see the Abbey quite
clearly. Walk across Mill Lane Bridge, climb the Abbey Steps (63 of them) and walk past
the semi-derelict East Wall of the Abbey into the 15th Century Market Cross area.
There you will see the entrance to the Abbey grounds by the side of the Rajah Indian
Restaurant through the Tolsey Gate.
(To avoid Abbey Steps you can park in
the Town Centre short stay car park but it is restricted to 2 hours maximum stay, Monday
to Saturday though it is free on a Sunday).
