DirectionsFrom our offices on The Pantiles, turn right onto Linden Park Road, then right again onto London Road. At the mini-roundabout, go straight on and stay on this road, going through a set of traffic lights, climbing up out of the town with the Common on your left. Keep going and at the next mini-roundabout, take the first exit onto St John's Road. Stay on this road, eventually passing a pub on your right called the Hand & Sceptre. Keep going, passing a BUPA care home on your right and Vauxhall Lane, also on your right hand side.
