HMP Hewell is in a rural location and not well served by public transport. The nearest station is Redditch about 5 miles away.

A Community Transport service will operate on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday picking up from Birmingham New Street railway station, Coventry railway station and Redditch railway station and then onto the establishment. Bookings for the service must be made in advance on 0800 316 9048 and service users must register using the above free phone number before travel. Return fares are applicable and can be paid to the driver on the day of travel.

If travelling by car make sure that you use the correct postcode : B97 6QQ. The Grange Resettlement Unit is on a different part of the site and has its own entrance which is signposted from the first roundabout as you enter the site. There is ample parking at both sites.
