From your home or business in Melksham

Melksham Station is situated on Station Approach - just off the A365 Bath Road to the north of the town, a few yards from where it splits from the A350 Beanacre and Chippenham Road.

If you drive your car to the station, there is car parking (currently free) in a dedicated car park for rail users on the right hand side of the approach road.

If you cycle to the station, take the old Bath Road from the town centre and use the underpass under the A350 to get to the station clear of trunk road traffic. Covered cycle parking is available on the platform, or you can take your cycle on the train at no extra charge.

The station is a 10 minute walk from the Town Centre - follow the old Bath Road past Cooper Tires, go through the underpass under the Chippenham Road, and fork right down to the station

Buses on routes D3, x72, 68 and 69 pass the top of Station Approach, stopping about 100 yards beyond the station at Roundponds

Taxis can be taken to the station, and if you get a lift there is plenty of drop-off space. If you are returning to Melksham and want a taxi, we advise you to prebook.
