Great Witley Church lies 10 miles NW of the city of Worcester, off the A443 road from Ombersley-Tenbury Wells just east of Great Witley Village. Our postcode is WR6 6JT, and can be found on OS Map 150 ref 769 649. Access is via an unmade private drive with a lodge house at each end. At the moment the access from the Great Witley end is in very poor condition so please access via the Worcester Lodge end.
There is limited general car parking in the vicinity of the church. Take care that you head for Witley Church, not to be confused with Witley Court which has a separate entrance and car park administered by English Heritage. Visitors to Witley Court may use their larger car park, and then visit the Church in addition to Witley Court.

If travelling by bus, please note that a rather long walk up the drive is necessary if visiting only the church. However, if you are also taking the opportunity to visit Witley Court, their entrance and newer pathways provide easier access to the church as well.
Disabled access by car is available right outside the Church entrance. The church is entered by three stone steps, or by a wheelchair ramp, but is level on the inside. The Church Garden Tearooms and Witley Court Visitor Centre are accessible by car, and are nearly flat. Toilet facilities are available at the Church Tearooms. Portaloo facilities are available at the church during services, recitals and concerts. The Gardens have some slopes and steps.
Refreshments are available in the Garden Tearooms, see their website for opening times.
