What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is ample car parking on site . If it is full you may wish to consider using the Park and Ride car park (Elstow, Bedford MK42 9XF), which offers free parking and a regular bus service, approximately every 12 minutes. A daily return fare costs £2.60 for adults.

The meeting venue is about 0.6 miles from the Park and ride and takes less than 15 minutes to walk. Altrenatively if you decide to take a bus it is only a 2 minutes ride (please get off at Technology House stop which is right outside King's House)
