On foot

You can access Tring Park directly from the surrounding country roads. On the western boundary there are two entrances off Hastoe Lane, two off Merlin Hill, three directly off the village roads in Wigginton to the east and one via a public footpath from Tring to the north via a footbridge over the A41.

The flat, hard-surfaced Ridgeway National Trail runs through the park, entering off Marlin Hill to follow the King Charles Ride - the main path through the woodland on top of the ridge - from east to west until exiting onto Fox Road. The wide entrances are suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs though the track can become seasonally muddy in places. Other entrances to the site are simple squeeze stiles or kissing gates.

The towpath of the Grand Union Canal offers a scenic, flat and traffic-free route for cycling if coming from Leighton Buzzard or Watford direction.

Whether you're travelling from the north or south, come off the canal at Station Road and continue towards the High Street (B4635). Once on the High Street please take extra care as this is a busy road and whilst traffic is not fast moving there are a lot of zebra crossings, pedestrians on narrow pavements, and often delivery vehicles to the local shops, cafés and restaurants.

Follow the brown signage, turn left onto Akeman Street and continue until you reach the main entrance of the Natural History Museum at Tring. Turn left onto Park Street. There is a gate on the right hand side of the road which takes you through to the joint Woodland Trust and Natural History Museum’s car park. There are several bike stands here where you are welcome to store a bike for the duration of your visit.
