By road: we are just off the A303 - take the exit marked Weyhill and follow the road about 1 mile to the village of Weyhill. The long chalk walls of the Craft Centre are distinctive on the right hand side of the road as you get near the end of the village. Turn right at the roundabout to enter the site.
By bus: The number 8 bus runs regularly from Andover bus station to the gates of the Craft Centre.
By rail: From Andover train station, it is best to walk to the bus station and then catch the number 8 bus. Alternatively it is about a 10 minute ride by taxi to the Fairground from the train station.
