It is easily accessible by road, as it is just off the A45 to the south-east of Coventry. From the Toll-Bar Island where the A45 and A46 meet, follow the A45 away from Coventry for about 200 metres, then turn left just after a 'Texaco' filling station into Brandon Lane. The Nature Centre is about 1 mile along on the right hand side. Just follow the brown Tourist Signs for Nature Centre.
Approaching from Brandon Village, follow the road past the 'Royal Oak': the Nature Centre is about 1.5 miles along on the left hand side - again just follow the brown Tourist signs for Nature Centre.
There are regular bus services from Coventry to Toll-Bar Island and from Rugby to Brandon Village, but unfortunately no public transport along Brandon Lane itself.
By rail, go to Coventry Station then get a taxi to Brandon (up to £10).
