Directions and Parking

This event takes place in the Darwin Room of the nature center BEECHE. To access the room go round to the back of the building and down the boardwalk on your left.

Buses that pass near the centre are the R8 and the 358 (a short walk from Farnborough).

The main car park at High Elms is located on High Elms Road (near Shire Lane). You can follow the Brown Highway signs for High Elms Country Park.

The main car park can get very busy. If it is full there is another unsurfaced carpark called Cuckoo Wood car park a mile down High Elms Road towards Downe – you can walk back through High Elms Country Park towards the centre but bear in mind this walk does take around 30 minutes.

Blue badge parking is available in front of BEECHE. To access this please access the park using the entrance off Shire Lane which is marked for deliveries and staff. At the cross roads turn left up the slope and you will see the BEECHE building at the top of the slope. Please be aware this entrance and car park is only for Blue Badge holders.

Other Information

The session will take place inside and outside. Please wear suitable clothing and footwear for all weathers. For more information contact the BEECHE office on 01689860571 or email beeche@idverde.co.uk
