Duke’s Ride
Crowthorne
Berkshire
RG45 7PU


Use the main entrance through the gates into Byron Drive from Duke’s Ride (Wellington College is signposted). We have had reports that Sat Navs sometimes attempt to use other entrances, but usually only the Duke’s Ride one is open in the evening.
There is now a security barrier in operation just inside the gates. If attended, just let the security officer know that you are playing at the chess club, and you will be let through.

Detailed Directions
Enter the college through the usual entrance on Duke’s Ride and continue past the security guard (tell him you’re here for chess). Drive as far as the three parallel roads to the right. We recommend you take the middle of these, the main wide road leading to the front entrance of the college, and park here. Should there be no space, park instead at the end of the third road towards the main building in the area marked P.E on the map, and indicated with P. Having parked, walk towards the main school buildings, and turn left on the road/path immediately before them.
