      Travelling to Launde Abbey

      By car: Launde Abbey lies 14 miles east of Leicester and 30 miles west of Peterborough.

      If coming along the A47, when you reach East Norton turn north (left if coming from Leicester,
      right if coming from Peterborough) and follow the road – and signs – for Loddington. At the T-
      junction in Loddington turn right; follow the road for about a mile. As you crest a hill and cross
      a cattle grid beside the road sign announcing “Launde” you’ll see the Abbey at the bottom of
      the hill on your right.

      Launde is also easily accessible from the A1 through Oakham. Follow the signs to the
      railway station and, immediately after the level crossing, turn left (following the signpost for
      Leicester). Take the second turning on your left, signposted Leicester and Braunston, and
      continue through Braunston village. After about one mile turn left shortly after the Withcote
      sign, signposted Launde. Cross two cattle grids and you will see Launde Abbey on the left.

      By train: Oakham is the nearest station and trains stop there from Birmingham, Leicester,
      Peterborough or Stansted, (There is, however, a limited service in the evening and at
      weekends.)  Taxis can be booked in advance via Rutland Cabs: 01572 757891

      It is also possible to travel to Market Harborough or Leicester, although the taxi journey is
      longer and more expensive. Taxis are usually available at both stations on demand.

      By bus: Unfortunately there are no bus services serving Launde Abbey
