PLEASE NOTE: VEHICLES CANNOT ACCESS COMPANION CYCLING FROM WITHIN BUSHY PARK – ACCESS IS ONLY FROM THE A308
Companion Cycling operates from the Stockyard where the Royal Parks have their offices in the South West corner of Bushy Park. The Stockyard is accessed from the A308 (Hampton Court Road) approximately 200 metres east (towards Hampton Court) from the junction with the A311 (Church Street, Hampton) and just next to Hogarth Way. The entrance is through the large gate set back from the road in a high wall – please note, this gate is now kept closed at all times and you will need to alert us of your arrival either by phoning our office on 020 8979 6061 or sounding your horn so that we can come and open the gate for you. See the location map for details of where we are (the grid reference is TQ144694). If you are using a satnav the postcode is TW12 2EJ.
Please note that there is often traffic congestion along the A308 so please allow plenty of time for your journey.
Directions from Hampton Court roundabout
From the Hampton Court Roundabout follow the A308 towards Sunbury. After a few hundred yards the houses on your left give way to an open view of the River Thames and Bushy Park is on your right behind high railings. Approximately 3/4 mile after the Hampton Court roundabout there is a low white house on your left. Shortly after this house the park railings on your right give way to a high brick wall and there is a large pale grey house on your left. The gate into the Stockyard is directly opposite this house and the Companion Cycling office is across the yard to your right.
Directions from M3/Sunbury Cross
From the roundabout at Sunbury Cross follow the A308 towards Hampton Court. After approximately 2 miles you will come to a set of traffic lights by the waterworks at Hampton. Carry straight on across these lights towards Hampton Court and shortly afterwards you will pass 2 T-junctions each with a main road coming in from your left. The first of these is High Street and the second is the A311, Church Street. The entrance to the Stockyard is approximately 200 metres after the second of these junctions on your left opposite a large pale grey house (immediately after you have passed the turning to Hogarth Way on your left).
There is limited parking available within the Stockyard. Follow the signs through the inner gate and round to the right then past the buildings on your right. Please follow the sign ahead of you at the far end of this track which directs you left to the car parking area.
