Directions to the PW Show

The Venue
The Harlequin Suite, The Winning Post Inn, Chertsey Road, Twickenham,
TW2 6LS              Link to website:

By Car
Same route as for the old venue at Richmond.  From Outside London take M25, M3, A316, go over one roundabout and entrance to the winning Post is after 500 metres on your left. 
From Inner London, after Richmond Circus follow A316 past QCH and continue straight on over 3 roundabouts.  You will pass the Winning Post on your right. At the next roundabout take the 4th exit and the entrance to the Winning Post will be on your left after 500 metres.

FREE PARKING.  There is extensive free parking at the site and in the residential roads behind the Winning Post. The Harlequin Suite is to the right of the main building and access is through fire doors at the rear and side of the hall.

By Public Transport
From Central London and the South of England by overground train (South West Trains) from Waterloo or Clapham Junction to Whitton Station. There are 8 trains an hour and the journey time is approx. 30 minutes.  
From the North of England by train to London arriving at Kings Cross, St. Pancras or Euston. Take the London Underground Victoria line just 6 stops to Vauxhall and change for South West Trains to Whitton Station as above.  
Whitton Station is just 3 minutes walk from the Winning Post - turn left out of the station past Jubilee Avenue and Pauline Crescent; the next turning on your left is the entrance to the Winning Post.

Should you wish to take the London Underground to Richmond as in previous years you could get a black cab or a H22 bus from the taxi rank and bus stop outside the station but it is far easier to change platform and take a South West Train service to Whitton Station as above (4 trains an hour, journey time 8 minutes).

Oyster cards are accepted on all London Underground lines, buses and South West Trains to Whitton Station.
