The Museum is not always the easiest place to find, especially as the front is on a busy dual carriageway, and the post-code takes you a mile up the road! We are on the corner of Marlborough Road and Day House Lane, next door to the Sun Inn and opposite a Texaco garage.
Richard Jefferies Museum
Marlborough Road, Coate Water, Swindon SN3 6AA

Please note that we have very limited space for cars, usually reserved for volunteers, disabled visitors and deliveries
. Otherwise, visitors should park at Coate Water (in summer, the overflow carpark). If you have a special reason to want to park on site, please do contact
We have four entrances:
- Pedestrian gate accessed via the summer overflow carpark at Coate Water, which can also be reached via a path from Coate Water itself.
- Large gate on Day House Lane for cars which leads into our small carpark for volunteers, disabled visitors and deliveries.
- Gates for cars (volunteers, disabled visitors and deliveries) and pedestrians off the Marlborough Road dual carriageway.
- The arched Blue Gate, which is open occasionally but generally kept closed when there are lots of children in the Museum grounds.
