How to find us

By road

From London:
 This route is shorter, but it is better to use M40 Junction 9 and follow directions "From the North" in rush-hour traffic, and certainly between 3pm and 6pm, when it is best to avoid Oxford.

Take the M40 to Junction 8, then follow the A40, by-passing Oxford to the North. Take the A44, signposted Evesham through Woodstock. 4 miles from Woodstock, and 1.5 miles after passing 2 signposts to Glympton, turn left for Ditchley at Kiddington crossroads (signed Ditchley). Follow for 1 mile (keeping right), into the Park (ignore the Private signs) and through the gates past the lodge. Bear left at the next fork by the oak tree, and come to the front of the Mansion.

From the North: Take the M40 to Junction 9, and follow the A34 towards Oxford. Turn off at the 2nd exit, and follow the B4027 through Bletchingdon, Wootton and Glympton until it joins the A44; turn right for 400 metres to Kiddington  cross roads and turn left for Ditchley as above.

From the South: Take the A34 from Newbury by-passing Oxford to the West.Turn off onto the A44 (signed Blenheim and Evesham). Go through Woodstock and 4 miles on turn left at Kiddington as in route 1 above.

From  the West or South West: Via Burford (B4437) or Witney (B4022) to Charlbury, then follow the town circuit for Woodstock (if from Burford) or Burford (if from Witney), and in The Slade turn North East onto Ditchley Road (small finger signpost). Follow this track for 2 miles into the park to the Mansion.
