HMP & YOI Warren Hill is located approximately one mile from the North Sea, adjacent to the village of Hollesley. It is a rural location. The nearest mainline station is Ipswich which has a connecting service to Melton Station ( 15-20 trip from Ipswich) however the trains are infrequent ( virtually non existent on Sunday’s) so check here before you set out.  Melton Station is still around 8 miles from the prison, 01394 380034 or 01394 4386661 are 2 local cab companies if you want to take a taxi.

For buses check with the local bus company ( Click here) , the bus service is limited and does not operate on Sunday’s.

For those approaching from the South by car: If travelling up the A12 from London it will be 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 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]. Take the next fork left [signposted to Hollesley]. Continue past ex USAF 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 down a steep hill and for Warren Hill take a sharp left signposted HMP & YOI Warren Hill. Continue along this lane past the dairy and this will bring you to the car park and the prison.
