Approaching from the town centre, follow Solent Road to a large roundabout. Take the first exit and continue over the bridge that crosses the Havant bypass to another (mini) roundabout and take the third exit into Harts Farm Way. The site is located on the right after approx 300 yards. During busy periods, site users are advised to continue along Harts Farm Way to the junction with the A3(M) and then come back on yourself to approach the site on the left. This will help to reduce congestion.

Approaching from Bedhampton & the A3(M)/A27 interchange, cross the A27 into Harts Farm Way, signposted 'Industrial Estate'. Continue for approximately half a mile and the site is located on the left hand side.
