Directions to Bletchley Leisure Centre

It is hard to get lost in Milton Keynes, the city is made on an American Grid system and the main roads have a V or H number. V = Vertical road H =Horizontal Road

Leave the M1 Motorway at junction 14.
Go towards Milton Keynes, you are on H6 Childs Way.

At the second Roundabout turn left on to V11 Tongwell Street.

At second roundabout turn right on to Standing Way H8

After 5th roundabout turn left on to Saxon Street V7 ( BE WARNED NEW SPEED LIMIT 40 MPH NEAR THE HOSPITAL)

Stay on this road going straight on

At the small double roundabout go straight ahead - keeping Tesco on your left.

At next roundabout turn left (marked Leisure Centre).

The pyramid on your left 400 yds on is the Leisure centre

Traders & clubs
Turn left at the road before the pyramid (North Street) and take the first right into Western Road. After about 100yds, turn right into the rear entrance to the Leisure Centre.
Traders and exhibitors will be directed to the rear of the centre for unloading from 0730 to 0930. Space is limited so you are asked to unload promptly and then move your vehicles to the car parking spaces.
There are four Lettered entrances to the hall from the rear and you will be sent joining instructions which will direct you to unload at the entrance nearest to your stand position.
Public parking
A little further on on the right opposite the Pyramid (go to the mini roundabout and double back). More parking is available by the Bus Station or near Iceland.
Please do not use the small car park in front of the main entrance to the centre as this is used by visitors to the health club and other centre visitors.
The route should have Model Show signs but we have been plagued by the local kids pinching the signs or turning them round.
Lost on the day phone 07767 674169
Within the centre is a small snack bar and a bar selling more serious refreshments

See you there
