Access Guide

About the Yard

The Yard is in the centre of the village of Wellesbourne

Making the Most of Your Visit

The Yard has recreated the conditions of wheelmaking and blacksmithing the 19th and 20th centuries, using the original buildings. Access is available to the buildings but the floors are original and may be uneven.

Guided and/or audio visits are available. Large print information is available from the Ticket Office.

Assistance Dogs

Assistance dogs are welcome throughout the site. Water bowls are available outside the Visitor Centre.

Public Transport

By bus: The X15 stops in Chestnut Square - a short walk to the site. These services stop at Stratford Upon Avon, Coventry, Leamington Spa & Warwick. Please find information on timetables here

Admission Charges

There is an NO entry charge to the Yard for visitors on a Saturday but there is a charge for group visits in the evening and midweek.


There is no parking onsite. Cars, coaches and mini-buses should be parked in the Loxley Close spur (approximately 300m south of the Yard entrance) near to the Coop store. There are Car Park signs on the Ettington Road.
