The Sales office is situated about 10 miles (16km) to the west of Central London. From the centre of London, take the A40 (Oxford Road). Once you get to Acton, you will need to take the exit sign-posted the North Circular Road (A406). This exit will bring you out at the Hanger Lane Gyratory System, basically a very large roundabout. Take the 5th exit off of the roundabout into Twyford Abbey Road. Go under the bridge and take the 1st right into Coronation Road. Britannia Way is situated approximately 800 yards on the right hand side.

How to get to there by Underground (Metro) Train From the City Centre or Heathrow Airport:
Take the Piccadilly Line to Park Royal tube station. You may need to change trains at Acton Town. There are 2 exits from the tube. Take the exit which brings you on to the main road, the Western Avenue. Turn right and just in front of you will be a subway which takes you under the Western Avenue (A40). On exiting the subway, walk down the alleyway in front of you. This will bring you into Coronation Road. Turn right and walk for approximately 600 yards. Britannia Way is situated on the right hand side
