How to get there

The prison is in a fairly remote rural location and is badly served by public transport. Click here for bus information.

The nearest mainline station is Ipswich ( about 18 mile away), with the local stations of Melton and Woodbridge around 5-6 miles away. The train service runs every hour on Saturday and every 2 hours on Sunday (click here for more details)

If travelling by car up the A12 from London it is easier to by-pass Ipswich by turning right at the roundabout marking the junction of the A12/A14. Follow the A14 over the Orwell Bridge and then re-join the A12 by following the Lowestoft and Woodbridge signs. Continue along the A12 for approximately three miles until you reach the Woodbridge by-pass. Do not go into The train service Woodbridge but continue along the A12 Woodbridge by-pass until you reach the second roundabout. Here take the right turn (A1152) signposted to Melton. Proceed down the hill, across traffic lights and continue for about half a mile over a level crossing and river bridge. After the river fork right (roundabout) and take the road towards Bawdsey (and RAF Woodbridge). Continue past RAF Woodbridge base on your left. Take the next left fork, (do not go into Hollesley village). Carry on and bear right at the next fork. You will see a white concrete water tower which is at a crossroads. Go straight over. You will now be going through prison property and passing houses on your left. Continue past signpost for Warren Hill and Hollesley Bay is straight ahead.
