Directions

Milton Keynes is easy to reach by rail and road, and is about 30 minutes by road from Luton airport.

By Rail

Milton Keynes Central station is on the West Coast Mainline and is well served by trains from London Euston (8 per hour on a Saturday morning) and from Birmingham and elsewhere.
Several Bus services run directly from MK Central station to Campbell Park, and a bus leaves every 10 minutes.  The bus journey time is approximately 20 minutes (event assembly is about 40 mins walk from MK Central, so we recommend you use the bus).

By Road

Milton Keynes lies close to the M1 which is the likely approach route if travelling from the North or South.  In either case exit the motorway at J14 and take the A4146 (Childs Way) heading west towards Milton Keynes.
From the east, routes from the A421 or A505 join the M1 at J13 from which point the route is as above.
From the West, if approaching on the A421 from Buckingham take the B4034 north toward the city centre and Campbell Park if parking on the Plateau or in the city centre, or else continue and take the A4146 for the Coachway.

Plateau parking

Limited parking, dedicated to orienteers attending the event, will be available on the plateau adjacent to assembly.   Access to this car park will be limited to those issued with permits in advance, based on information provided when you enter.   Permits will be given to helpers, those with young or elderly passengers, and large vehicles, with permits for any remaining spaces allocated to those carrying more rather than fewer passengers.

Parking elsewhere

There is a Park&Ride service from the Coachway, off the A4146 very close to J14 of the M1.  (http://www.mkparkandride.co.uk).   Parking is free and the ride is £2 per person.  Buses run every 15 minutes and the journey time to central MK “The Point”, is approx. 10 minutes.  This bus stop is a 15 minute walk from assembly.


In addition, there are a number of multi-storey car parks and other parking at the mkcentre area about 7-10 minutes walk from assembly. Prices here vary and the best deal seems to be the Theatre multistorey (£3.20 for stays of 4-8 hours).


You must approach the arena by walking along Avebury Boulevard; do not enter Campbell Park on your way to the event.
You should not use car park spaces at the north of Campbell Park or car parks at the eastern side which are limited in capacity and are intended for regular users of the park.   These will be signed as OOB for orienteer parking.  Further details will be provided in the final details.
