Satellite Navigation

IMPORTANT: please note that if you are relying on your satellite navigation system to get you there, please set the destination to postcode SS12 9GP, which will take you to a point in Tresco Way, Wickford, close to the roundabout at the Public Entrance to the Park. Left to their own devices, some navigation systems will otherwise direct you to a private farm track, which, though it does cut through the Park, unfortunately, it by-passes the public carpark and leaves you stranded between two locked gates!!!!


By Rail The nearest station is Wickord, which is an intermediate stop on the Greater Anglia service from London Liverpool Street to Southend Victoria, and a terminus of the Southminster to Wickford branch line.
