From Bromley South station, head west down Westmoreland (B228) You will soon see a right hand turning for Queen Anne Avenue. Take this turn, and follow this road until you pass the school. Shortly after the school, there is a public footpath on the right hand side. This crosses the railway lines to Bromley Gardens.

Parking can be awkward here do to residential limits. No parking is allowed between the hours of 12:00 - 14:00 Monday - Saturday, but Sundays is okay. In some instances, it may be best to park in the town centre, and make the short walk.
Public transport
The location is just a short walk from Bromley South train station, and the area is well served my numerous buses.
